A secure web-based portal, PFS Connect, is utilized to deliver robust reporting to investment managers and investors. A critical factor separating EFSI from other fund administrators is our in-depth knowledge of the alternative investment industry and our commitment to fully understand a fund’s structure, investment strategy, and fund economics prior to the commencement of fund operations. EFSI partners with each client, guiding them throughout the fund lifecycle to address the complexities and challenges of their business.
