ALBRIDGE SOLUTIONS AND DST VISION PROVIDE CONNECTIVITY TO MAXIMIZE INTERMEDIARY DATA MANAGEMENT AND REPORTING EFFICIENCY

March 14, 2005—Lawrenceville, NJ---Albridge Solutions, the industry leader in enterprise financial data consolidation and performance reporting, announced today that it now offers its broker/dealer customers integrated connectivity between Albridge and DST Vision™. Vision is a leading account management Web site for financial advisors provided by DST Systems, Inc. The solution will provide financial advisors with "point of click" access from Albridge’s Wealth Management reporting platform directly into DST Vision, a resource for specific client mutual fund or variable annuity account data.

"Albridge Solutions recognizes the value of integrating with other solutions such as DST Vision to provide more "in–depth" information on securities," said Greg Pacholski, President and CEO of Albridge Solutions. "The key is to make this information seamless to the end user so we maximize the financial advisor’s efficiency and time while minimizing expense. We enable financial advisors to spend their time where it matters most –with their clients."

"DST Systems is pleased to work with Albridge on behalf of its broker/dealer customers," said Kyle Mallot, DST client services officer in charge of Vision. "Vision’s design enables integration with broker/dealers, giving them much-needed access to a variety of critical information."

By offering direct access to DST Vision, Albridge clients have one more resource added to the growing portfolio of services, tools and resources conveniently available through Albridge’s Web-based Wealth Management Reporting Solution.

"Now, with access to DST Vision, our advisers are able to serve their clients better, as they do not have to call the fund companies for routine information such as cost basis, rights of accumulation, and share balances," said Lon Dolber, of American Portfolios, an Albridge Solutions client. "With management company approval, advisors are also able to affect a buy or sell without having to open another application which saves time and reduces costly trading errors."

Since announcing its first enterprise financial institution client four years ago, Albridge has become a leader in providing enterprise data consolidation and Web-based portfolio accounting/performance reporting solutions to the financial services industry and counts more than 85 institution-level clients and tens of thousands of advisors as users. Albridge’s Wealth Reporting provides financial institutions, their advisors, and their permissioned clients with immediate, on-demand access to the transaction-level data that's critical to successful wealth management.
