Alternative Investment Capital Ltd Chooses eFront Cloud Solutions

Alternative Investment Capital Limited (AIC), a Japanese management firm specialising in private equity investments, has chosen eFront's flagship FrontInvest solution in combination with its eFront Investor Cloud (EIC) solution to integrate the firm's operations and streamline its alternative investments data workflows.

FrontInvest is an end-to-end solution for both investors and fund managers. EIC provides services to limited partners by collecting and validating performance data from fund managers.
AIC was founded in 2002 as an investment management firm in Japan focusing exclusively on alternative assets. The firm is headquartered in Tokyo and primarily serves Japanese institutional investors and pension funds. As of 2015, AIC has nearly $USD2.9 billion in AUM, spread across six fund of funds, and provides discretionary management and advisory and monitoring services to its clients.
"eFront is the only system provider to offer us end-to-end streamlining for our fund operation from data input to reporting – in Japanese," says Takeharu Horikawa, Managing Director, AIC. "What's equally important is that eFront's EIC cloud service will centralise all of the underlying portfolio company data from our GPs. This combined approach provides unparalleled value to us."
"We're delighted to welcome AIC into the eFront family of clients," says Oliver Johnson, eFront's Managing Director, SEA. "Our rapid expansion in Japan is, in part, due to our ability to serve local needs and provide a complete reporting system in the Japanese language."
