eFront Solutions for Fund of Funds

Fund of Funds managers face many challenges.  They have the same operational needs as any alternative asset investor, analyzing and benchmarking the performance of the funds in which they invest.  And as they’re managing funds, they must analyze and report on their own fund performance, while working with very large volumes of data.  They typically must manage other investors’ participation in their funds, which adds additional complexity in investor reporting, communications, notice distributions, and cash flow management.

Reporting is key for Fund of Funds managers, as investors demand detailed information about their investments, down to the individual assets held by a fund.  The Fund of Funds manager needs to dive deeper into exposure information, cash flow forecasting, and asset-level KPIs, and provide insights that prove they are delivering higher performance.

Fund management and investor management software must help a Fund of Fund manager meet these needs while also helping them streamline the operational demands of their business.
