SAN FRANCISCO – August 11, 2010 - Advent Software, Inc. (NASDAQ:ADVS) a leading provider of software and services for the global investment management industry, today announced that Dolan McEniry Capital Management, LLC (“DMC”) has implemented Advent’s full investment management suite including Advent Portfolio Exchange® (APX), its award-winning, integrated portfolio and client relationship management solution; Moxy®, its industry leading trade order management solution; Advent Custodial Data (ACD), to electronically collect, consolidate, and deliver custodial data; Rex, to automate transaction reconciliation; and Advent Revenue Center, its comprehensive billing and revenue management tool.
A Chicago-based private fixed income value investor specializing in corporate bonds, Dolan McEniry has nearly doubled its assets under management to over $2 billion in the past 18 months as investors poured funds into their fixed income strategies. To accommodate this rapid growth and build a foundation for future expansion, Dolan McEniry needed a scalable technology solution to automate manual processes.
The decision to replace their previous portfolio management system and spreadsheet-based manual processes with Advent’s product suite has had an immediate return on investment for Dolan McEniry. Since the implementation of Advent’s APX, the firm now generates monthly and quarterly reports in half the time. Additionally, the integration of APX, ACD and Rex has enabled Dolan McEniry to conduct monthly reconciliation and performance calculations of its more than 550 accounts in just one day, compared to the four to five days required using the previous system. The implementation of Advent’s order management system, Moxy has helped the firm’s traders manage mounting trade volumes more effectively as well as create a seamless integration between the firms trading and operations departments.
“Due to the current investment climate, investors are allocating more assets to fixed income and Dolan McEniry has been fortunate to have greatly increased assets under management. DMC’s AUM growth required an upgrade to our portfolio accounting system and order management system. The Advent solution has allowed DMC to provide scalability, increase productivity, and significantly reduce manual data entry without adding additional staff,” said Roger S. McEniry, Managing Member, Dolan McEniry Capital Management, LLC.
“Dolan McEniry made the move to APX from a competing system in order to leverage advanced functionality to manage fixed income. With over 600 firms worldwide using APX we were confident we could achieve their expedited implementation schedule,” said Michele Holton, Director of Product Marketing at Advent. “We are very pleased that Advent technology can provide the foundation for their future growth.”
