05/10/2019 | 06:01am EDT

Combination of Aladdin and eFront Sets New Standard in Investment Management Technology

BlackRock, Inc. (NYSE:BLK) has completed the acquisition of eFront, the world’s leading end-to-end alternative investment management software and solutions provider. The combination of eFront with Aladdin will set a new standard in investment and risk management technology, vastly expanding Aladdin’s alternatives capabilities and providing a whole-portfolio technology solution to clients.

“As more investors incorporate alternatives into their portfolios, the ability to seamlessly manage portfolios across public and private asset classes on a single platform is critical,” said Rob Goldstein, Chief Operating Officer of BlackRock. “eFront will extend Aladdin’s end-to-end processing capabilities in alternative asset classes, enabling clients to get an enterprise view of their portfolio. We are excited to welcome eFront’s 700 employees to BlackRock as we continue to offer eFront as its own platform and enrich its value proposition with Aladdin analytics. BlackRock and eFront share the same vision of making alternatives less alternative and will work together towards that objective.”
