Paris, October 1, 2019 – eFront, the world’s leading technology solution for alternative investment management, announced today that Broad Peak Funds Management (BPFM), has selected eFront Invest to manage its senior debt lending, funds administration, and investor deal flow processes.
After an exhaustive search for the right platform, BPFM identified that eFront stood out as the best fit for their operations. Before implementing eFront Invest, the company was relying on multiple Excel-based systems, which were time-consuming and led to bottlenecks of data flow. The eFront solution addressed a key challenge for the company, which was to have a system that could be used effectively from every level of the business without excessive training. This ease of capability was especially crucial when it came to lending solution software and its integration with the investor-facing business, with barely any systems offering the functionality that the company required.
Mike Kearney, Head of Origination at BPFM, said, “Using one system to administer all of our operations assures our investors that the integrity of the data is always at the highest standard. Additionally, our team can now produce investor and borrower reports on demand, which allows us to be more agile and stand out in front of our investors. Aside from the technical aspects of the system, it was an absolute pleasure working with the eFront team: professional, friendly, and cooperative at every juncture.”
John White, Head of Professional Services APAC at eFront, commented, “eFront offers BPFM an end-to-end software solution that seamlessly manages their deal origination, workflow, loan and investor management processes. In particular, eFront Invest has proven to be a great product to assist with investor reporting, an aspect that is paramount to their business. We look forward to taking them through a successful implementation and seeing the benefits that our solution will bring them in the future.”
