eFront Investor Cloud (EIC) is a service that enables a limited partner organization to “outsource” all of the time and effort associated with collecting, validating, transforming and organizing quarterly performance data provided to an LP by their numerous fund managers. This is a critical service as GPs typically provide data to their investors in different formats, causing much work for an LP to analyze the performance of their portfolio of alternative investments. By using EIC to perform this service, an LP can spend much more of their valuable resources analyzing performance and optimizing their investment decisions.

eFront Investor Cloud is an important component of eFront’s complete set of solutions for LPs. In the diagram below, EIC is represented by the Data Services box.

EIC enables an LP to obtain accurate data from their fund managers in a standardized format. An LP no longer needs to worry about the format a GP may force upon them for receiving their quarterly performance data. An investor can get right to the business of analyzing the performance data, up to the portfolio level, closer to the end of a reporting period.

EIC employs industry-adopted templates to simplify the work for GPs to create and populate the reports, and for LPs to receive data. Custom data requirements can always be accommodated into a client’s templates, or custom templates can be used.

eFront Investor Cloud can be used with other eFront solutions, or as a stand-alone service to handle all of the effort related to collecting, validating and organizing quarterly performance data from fund managers. EIC uses the LP Investor Portal to securely transfer data FrontInvest or to any other system used for portfolio analysis and back office functions.
