Catella Asset Management Live with Advent Portfolio Exchange® and Moxy®

London and San Francisco - 26 September 2007

Advent Software, Inc., (NASDAQ: ADVS), the leading provider of software and services to the global investment management industry, today announced that Catella Asset Management (Catella) has gone into live production with Advent Portfolio Exchange® (APX) and Advent’s Moxy® for trade order management, portfolio management and reporting and client relationship management functionality.

Stockholm-based Catella is one of Sweden’s leading independent asset managers with approximately $5 billion in assets under management. Catella’s services include fund management, special mandates and strategic asset allocation for institutional and private investors. With its business expanding and customer requirements becoming more personalised, Catella sought a solution with integrated fund management and discretionary asset management functionality on one single platform that could also meet local reporting requirements.

“Our asset management business entails complex strategic asset allocations and we found a solution that allowed us to continue our growth strategies and at the same time maintain our unique client focus. We also wanted a single point of entry for our trading which Advent’s solution provides,” said Stefan Widenfelt, CEO of Catella Asset Management.

“We invited a broad range of vendors to showcase their solutions, but we chose the Advent Portfolio Exchange® / Moxy® solution as we felt the integrated front- to back-office platform was best suited to our requirements,” added Widenfelt. “We are pleased to have found a single business partner in Advent who can meet our end-to-end needs with an integrated offering.”

“We are delighted that a company of Catella’s market standing has chosen Advent. This is a strategic implementation, which demonstrates the powerful capabilities of APX and Moxy® as an integrated solution,” said Hakan Valberg, General Manager for Advent EMEA. “Our ability to meet Catella’s specific requirements highlights the proven scalability, flexibility and reliability of Advent’s solutions. This is another good example of the momentum we are continuing to build with our solutions in the European, Middle East and African markets,” added Valberg.
