Advent Software, Black Diamond And Schwab Announce Integration Agreement

Advent Software, Inc. (NASDAQ: ADVS) and Schwab Intelligent Technologies announced today that they entered into an agreement to integrate two of Advent’s portfolio management platforms – Black Diamond and Advent Portfolio Exchange® (APX) via Advent OnDemand® – with the Schwab OpenView Gateway™. Through this agreement, Advent will be extending the availability of custody information from Charles Schwab & Co., Inc. to drive high value workflows in these platforms. The ability to access current custodial data throughout the day will help advisors, portfolio managers and operations personnel make more informed decisions and enhance client service.

According to Dave Welling, vice president at Advent Software and general manager of Black Diamond, “We are looking forward to deepening our relationship with Schwab and continuing to collaborate to provide great service and technology to our shared clients. Deeper integration of custody information and workflows across the Advent, Black Diamond and Schwab platforms will help our clients realize significant productivity gains while also giving them better tools to serve their clients – and we are proud to be a part of a solution that helps to support advisor greatness.”

“This is an extension of our more than 20 year relationship with Advent, during which we have worked together to serve more than 1,400 shared clients,” said Neesha Hathi, senior vice president of advisor technology solutions for Schwab Advisor Services. “We are thrilled to be working with Advent on our continuing goal of creating access to Schwab through leading technology platforms like Black Diamond and Advent APX.”

Advisors attending IMPACT 2012 in Chicago November 13-16 are invited to visit the Schwab Center for more information or to come by the Advent – Black Diamond booth in the Expo.
