Advent Software's Moxy® Reaches 800 Client Milestone

San Francisco, CA - 8 January 2008

Advent Software, Inc., (NASDAQ: ADVS), the leading provider of software and solutions for the global investment management industry, today announced that the total number of Moxy® clients has reached 800, highlighting the product's industry leadership and continued momentum.

Moxy® is the most comprehensive trading and order management toolset in the marketplace. With 800 clients, it is the industry’s most widely used trade order management system (OMS) by more than 250%, according to analyst estimates.* Moxy® sets the standard for simplifying portfolio construction, execution, allocation and post-trade notification, improving portfolio performance and increasing trading desk productivity.

Moxy®’s client base is comprised of a diverse range of investment management firms in the U.S. and EMEA region. Clients include asset managers, hedge funds, bank/trust asset managers and broker dealers and range in size from $250 million in assets under management to more than $60 billion. Currently, Moxy® has more than 100 institutional and high-net-worth hybrid asset managers with over $5 billion in assets under management.

Dubuque Bank and Trust, one of the largest commercial banks in the state of Iowa, selected Moxy® to gain better control of their work flow processes within their trade order management function.

Moxy® has been the catalyst for a more efficient trading operation, enabling us to handle business growth without having to increase trading resources,” said Paul Peckosh, Executive Vice President, Dubuque Bank and Trust. “Moxy® has allowed us to increase the level of automation, improve operational efficiency and upgrade our compliance processes -- and Advent’s dedicated Moxy® support team has been invaluable.”

"We are very excited to reach this significant milestone -- surpassing the 800 customer mark is a testament to Moxy®’s industry-leading capabilities and proven scalability,” said John Bird, Moxy® Product Line Manager at Advent. “The steady growth in Moxy®’s customer base demonstrates Advent’s commitment to delivering a superior product, and providing the highest level of service to our clients.”

In June 2007, Advent launched Moxy® 6.0, which marked another milestone in the evolution of Advent’s award-winning trade order management system. Moxy® 6.0 features a new n-tier architecture that leverages Microsoft SQL 2005 and .NET 2.0, which offers clients greater scalability for growth. With the flexibility of Moxy® 6.0, firms can customize order management to their individual needs and optimize their workflows.
