South African Kagiso Tiso Holdings goes live with eFront Deal Flow and Portfolio Management Solutions

eFront, a leading software provider of financial solutions for managing alternative investments, is pleased to announce that Kagiso Tiso Holdings (KTH) has gone live with its flagship product, FrontInvest, to support its investment operations.

KTH was created by the merger of two leading black-owned and managed companies, Kagiso Trust Investments and Tiso Group. KTH epitomizes sustainable and progressive business values, combining a strong, values-driven, commercial ethic with a business culture grounded in responsible corporate citizenship. KTH invests in key growth areas across a variety of sectors and has aspiration to invest in other African markets.

As a result of the merger between Kagiso Trust Investments and Tiso Group, KTH decided they needed an integrated deal flow and portfolio management system on both asset and liability sides to support the newly combined investment portfolio. After reviewing various providers, KTH selected eFront FrontInvest.

The implementation lasted six months and provided KTH with a number of benefits that have been essential to the management of the merged company’s combined investments, as well as its business continuity, including centralized portfolio data, clear workflow and deal opportunity tracking, comprehensive management dashboards and consolidated performance views. In addition, the KTH implementation of FrontInvest enables management to track the portfolio and have relevant information available on a real time basis. The project is now officially in production and hosted on KTH’s own servers in Johannesburg.

“As our business continues to expand and African markets evolve, we need a comprehensive platform that can manage all of our direct investments across various industry sectors,” said William Cosby, investment director at KTH. “eFront FrontInvest not only addresses the various needs of our investment teams, but it also has the flexibility to be implemented very quickly. The solution provides us with a single, configurable system that will keep up with our growth.”

Jean Philippe Gireaud, Area Sales Manager at eFront, added: “We believe customers who choose to use the FrontInvest solution have a distinct advantage over others in the South African market as they are able to combine rich front office capabilities with deep portfolio monitoring and performance dashboards. As the needs of the private equity market evolve, we remain committed to providing sophisticated web-based solutions to facilitate better decision-making. We are very happy to serve KTH, a management company focused on responsible investments.”
