About eFront Insight Data Services

Every quarter, alternative investors around the world struggle to collect and transform data on their investments. Aggregating high-quality and consistent data from a wide range of general partners often proves difficult and time-consuming. eFront Insight Data Services (IDS) streamlines the exchange of data between limited and general partners through its SaaS-based information portal supported by data collection services. IDS’s secure and comprehensive online platform ensures investors always have access to accurate and standardized data.

Today’s Top Alternative Investment Data Challenges

Collecting quarterly data from every fund is time-consuming, expensive, difficult, and often leads to long delays in quarterly reporting.

Aggregating and consolidating data is challenging when every GP uses a different template format.

Quarterly reports do not contain the necessary level of data granularity and consistency.

There is insufficient time for high value-added tasks because so much time is required for data collection and aggregation.

Low-quality alternative investment data drastically limit the reliability and level of analysis that can be performed.

How will eFront Insight Data Services impact your alternative investments?

Fewer Errors
Increased Data Granularity
Time and Cost Savings
Increased Flexibility
Enhanced Communication

eFront Insight Data Services employs technology to reduce the risk of errors coming from manual data correction and updates. Leverage IDS’s proven processes to handle your alternative investment data collection, transformation, and validation.

With data and KPIs drilling down to the manager, fund, and underlying asset level across all alternative asset classes, IDS provides access to a uniquely comprehensive set of data, making it easy to perform complex analyses such as customized exposure analysis to currency, country, industry, etc.

Because eFront Insight Data Services takes on the burden of the entire data collection and validation processes, limited partners are left with significantly more time and resources to dedicate to high value-added tasks. Get the data you need faster than ever before without wasting time and resources on complicated data collection procedures.

Because eFront Insight Data Services is a SaaS-based information portal supported by data collection services, users are not constrained in terms of data volume. IDS was designed to be flexible, enabling users to scale up at a moment’s notice in order to handle any volume of quarterly performance data-processing tasks.
