Granite Springs Asset Management Chooses Advent Portfolio Exchange® through Advent OnDemand®

SAN FRANCISCO – August 4, 2011 – Advent Software, Inc. (NASDAQ: ADVS), a leading provider of software and services for the global investment management industry, today announced that Granite Springs Asset Management LLC has selected Advent Portfolio Exchange® (APX) through Advent OnDemand® for portfolio management and reporting.  Through Software as a Service (SaaS) delivery model, Advent OnDemand® offers Granite Springs the value of APX on a fully outsourced basis, bringing together key functions including portfolio accounting, customer relationship management (CRM), client reporting and communications,  with minimal IT and operational responsibility.

Established in May 2009, Granite Springs Asset Management LLC is an independent registered investment advisory firm that specializes in fixed-income portfolio management and tactical asset allocation ETF (exchange traded fund) strategies for private clients, family offices, foundations, endowments, pension plans and other institutional investors.

With Advent OnDemand®, Granite Springs can streamline processes and improve accuracy across the firm’s operations, at lower total cost of ownership than traditional, locally installed software deployments.  Advent’s remote access capabilities offer additional value to Granite Springs by enabling managers to access critical data and resources they needed from anywhere.
