Advent Receives Recognition in the Prestigious UK Awards as the “Best Investment Tool” for the Financial Services Industry

SAN FRANCISCO and LONDON – July 26, 2012 – Advent Software, Inc. (NASDAQ: ADVS), a leading provider of software and services for the global investment management industry, today announced that it has been recognized as the “Best Investment Tool” in the 2012 Systems in the City Awards in London. Launched in 1999 by consultancy firm Goodacre UK, the Awards are designed to reward the leading service and system suppliers to the regulated financial community in the UK.

Since 2000, Advent has been providing innovative solutions to the UK investment management community, including wealth managers, asset managers and alternative investment managers. With increased requirements for transparency and client reporting, Advent understands the new regulatory pressures its clients face, and offers tools to enable them to improve compliance, enhance customer service and expand automation for greater operational efficiency. As a result, Advent helps its clients grow their businesses and make better-informed decisions while controlling operational risks and costs. Advent has a strong reputation with its clients as a proven, long-term partner for growth. The company is dedicated to improving and localizing its solutions for the financial industry, which is continuously evolving and demanding more from the financial services providers.

Business editor Michael Wilson presented the Awards and said, “The behavior and performance of the financial community are very well reported in the press, but little is said about the firms and people that underpin the operations of the business. Unless firms have a solid and reliable systems infrastructure, they are taking huge risks. These Awards recognize the efforts that go on very much behind the scenes.”

“We are laser-focused on helping improve our clients’ businesses by providing advanced investment management solutions, so the honor of receiving ‘Best Investment Tool’ means a great deal to us. Our commitment is to give clients the best ways to provide investment clarity, earn trust and drive prosperity for their investors, and we are very proud of the success we’ve had in the UK over the past 12 years, which is a testament to this engagement,” said Håkan Valberg, Senior Vice President and General Manager, Advent Software EMEA.
