This year, eFront is celebrating 20 years of pioneering Alternative Investment solutions. We are truly grateful and proud to have had the trust and support of over 850 clients during this time, and are pleased to invite you to join the festivities.

Thanks to record participation in the 2018 Client Forums, which saw more than 500 attendees across both events, this year’s gatherings have been expanded to two days to provide further opportunity for involvement in planned networking events, interactive roadmap and breakout sessions, keynote speakers and presenters, as well as meeting with the eFront team to learn more about the offered solutions. Along with celebrating past achievements, the company will also use this occasion to share its plans for the future. eFront is looking forward to celebrating this milestone with you.

See you in New York!
