Evercore Selects Advent’s Wealth Management Platform to Support Growth

UK-Based Wealth Manager to Leverage Advent Portfolio Exchange® and Moxy® to Improve Operational Efficiency, Attract Institutional Business and Provide Superior Client Service

LONDON and SAN FRANCISCO – January 13, 2010 – Advent Software, Inc. (NASDAQ: ADVS), a leading provider of software and services for the global investment management industry, today announced that Evercore Pan-Asset Capital Management (“Evercore”) has selected Moxy®, Advent’s industry-leading trade order management solution, and Advent Portfolio Exchange® (APX), its award-winning, integrated portfolio and client relationship management solution.

London-based Evercore is a discretionary wealth management company, which focuses on asset allocation and index-tracking using exchange traded funds (ETFs). Established in 2007, the firm offers tailored asset management solutions to a diverse roster of clients, including pension funds, charity endowments and high-net-worth individuals.

Evercore initially relied on spreadsheets to support its operations. However, it needed a professional and robust technology platform with risk management and compliance capabilities in order to meet the stringent due diligence requirements of its target institutional client base. Using APX and Moxy®, Evercore will be able to leverage a range of functionality from portfolio modeling, trade execution and restriction capabilities, through to portfolio management, performance analytics and exposure reporting.

“Advent’s suite of trade order management, portfolio management and reporting tools will provide us with everything we need to meet the high service expectations of our clients, while helping us improve our business efficiencies and reduce operational overhead,” said Christopher Aldous, Chief Executive of Evercore Pan Asset. “With Advent, we have a flexible and reliable platform that can support our large-scale growth plans, while ensuring at all times that we are serving our clients’ best interests.”

“We are thrilled Evercore Pan-Asset has chosen Advent as its technology partner to support them in their next phase of development,” said Håkan Valberg, Senior Vice President and General Manager, Advent Software EMEA. “Having a discretionary wealth manager of Evercore’s caliber select Advent’s solution for wealth managers reflects our reputation as a tried and trusted provider to this market segment, and we look forward to helping Evercore meet its future objectives.”
