NEW YORK and SEATTLE, February 22, 2018 /PRNewswire/ --
Integration of PitchBook data will provide eFront customers with access to deep fund performance data to create more transparent benchmarks and make more informed investment decisions
eFront, the leading technology provider to alternative investment professionals, and PitchBook, the premier data provider for the private and public equity markets, announce today a strategic partnership to integrate PitchBook data within the recently announced eFront Insight solution.
Leveraging PitchBook's data feed solution, eFront clients can now flexibly access deep fund-level information, empowering Limited Partners (LPs) and General Partners (GPs) to gauge private market performance relative to peer groups for PE and VC strategies, while also allowing LPs to refine asset allocation strategies.
Additionally, eFront will also integrate performance measurement data and analysis from PitchBook Benchmarks into eFront Insight. Recently released, PitchBook Benchmarks is a performance measurement tool offering objective, reliable and transparent resource for fund performance data. The integration will be available this coming month as part of eFront Insight's early adopter program.
Launched earlier this month, eFront Insight introduces LPs and GPs to the ability to boost analytical capabilities through digitalized data exchanges. The solution combines several sources of information to generate unprecedented levels of analysis, ultimately facilitating more informed decision-making.
Commenting on the announcement, Thibaut de Laval, Chief Strategy and Marketing Officer at eFront, said: "eFront and PitchBook - the two leading providers of technology and market data to the alternative investment sector - joining forces behind our eFront Insight solution, is an important signal for the entire industry.
