eFront is the leading software solution for managing alternative investments, with 20+ years of experience powering the entire investment lifecycle for alternative investors.

eFront brings clarity to alternative investments. With eFront, you can manage private assets in your portfolio, understand risk and performance attribution, and gain transparency into every level of your investments.

In 2019, eFront was acquired by BlackRock and integrated with Aladdin to enable a whole portfolio approach and accelerate our shared vision to make alternatives less alternative.

Through eFront we collect the data from our portfolio companies (quarterly and annually) and we can access a quantifiable and consistent ESG-monitoring framework built by the platform which helps us understand our own exposure to specific ESG factors.



Bringing together the market leading capabilities of Aladdin for public markets and eFront for private markets sets a new standard in investment and risk management technology. Together, they enable investors to seamlessly manage portfolios across public and private asset classes on a single platform, providing a Whole Portfolio View.

Investors can now:

  • See everything in one view
  • Understand risk through many lenses
  • Evaluate performance across the entire portfolio and down to the single asset level, and act with greater clarity and efficiency

Alternatives were an alternative, until they weren’t.

Today’s investors are building sophisticated portfolios and bringing together public and private asset classes to achieve investment outcomes.

They need technology that creates connections, not silos. Dealing with separate teams, processes and data sets can be challenging.

Aladdin’s Whole Portfolio View can give you clarity.

We’ve integrated the best of Aladdin and eFront to deliver the industry-leading multi-asset investment platform.

Now you can seamlessly understand your exposures, risk, and performance across public and private investments.

Evaluate exposures through multiple lenses, from the top of an enterprise down to the individual holding.

Monitor risk through different market environments and stress test portfolios using BlackRock proprietary models and analytics.

Calculate investment performance with consistency and nuance across different asset classes.

All in one place with a single source of data.

Greater transparency allows you to move swiftly from insight to action.

Discover the power of a Whole Portfolio View.

See how Aladdin and eFront enable investors to manage portfolios across public and private asset classes on a single platform, providing a whole portfolio view.
