EFront, a leading software provider of financial solutions for alternative assets, today announces the availability of the newest versions of its FrontInvest and FrontAnalytics product suites.
FrontInvest v7 and FrontAnalytics v7 mark an important milestone for eFront and its clients around the world.
FrontInvest, a solution for limited partners, general partners and fund administrators, integrates and automates a firm's front, middle, and back office operations and facilitates communication between a firm and their investors as well as between a firm and their invested entities. FrontAnalytics is a business analytics solution offering dynamic dashboards and cash flow forecasting, empowering investors to understand their portfolio exposures and to optimize investment decisions throughout the entire investment lifecycle.
FrontInvest and FrontAnalytics are web-based solutions that accommodate all types of asset classes including private equity, real estate, infrastructure and hedge funds investments.
The new releases deliver many new capabilities and innovations in usability, performance and the end-user experience.
FrontInvest 7 offers enhanced transparency for monitoring portfolio and property positions within a fund by abstracting away all intermediate structures. Users can directly monitor the positions of a fund's underlying assets in order to obtain a better understanding of the investments regardless of an investment structure's complexity.
Comprehensive monthly and quarterly valuation runs for direct investments are optimized for clients managing high volumes. Support for payments, fees and income management, and bank operations and allocations have been enhanced with new capabilities and screens. Advanced data requirements, operations and tracking user interfaces for hedge fund investments are enhanced as are usability improvements in the CRM, Fund & Investor Management and Accounting modules.
FrontAnalytics 7 provides new charts and libraries to facilitate the real-time analysis of private equity, real estate and fund of hedge funds investments by limited partner (LP) organizations. Advanced bced benchmark libraries are now available as is a pre-built integration for Pevara™ data, eFront's performance measurement and benchmarking solution. Benchmark data can be imported ad hoc or on an automated schedule.
FrontAnalytics now offers dedicated dashboards for limited partners to explore and analyze hedge fund performance via a diverse set of pre-built statistics tailored for hedge fund investments.
The new FrontAnalytics Risk Management module enables LPs to perform "top-down" portfolio strategy analysis. After constructing a synthetic portfolio, users can change parameters to understand their impact on the portfolio while benchmarking investment proposals against defined risk profiles.
"We work closely with our clients to ensure that the eFront solutions address their needs as well as those of the extended alternative investment community," commented Olivier Dellenbach, CEO and founder of eFront. "I'm pleased that our technology continues to provide the most integrated and effective solutions for limited partners, general partners and fund administrators."
