Subscribe to our newsletter

Advent Software, a leading provider of software and services for the global investment management industry, has more than doubled the number of certified project management and consulting team members supporting clients in Europe, the Middle East and Africa during the past 12 months. The team now includes more than 65 qualified Advent consultants and implementation project managers who bring global perspectives, industry best practices and solution expertise to Advent clients in these regions.

Given an uncertain economic climate, many clients across EMEA are looking to technology to achieve automation and operational efficiencies to help insulate their businesses from macro-economic conditions. Helping clients manage and grow their business with Advent solutions has always been a top priority for Advent, and growing the locally-based consulting team in EMEA is an important area of focus for Advent. Advent has invested in developing a regional presence in key countries with people who speak local languages and understand local trends and issues that can impact investment managers and has made a number of significant hires across EMEA over the last year.

All Advent consultants complete a rigorous certification program to obtain product expertise, well before they start working with clients, to ensure team members deliver value and offer high and consistent quality service to clients. The team is able to support implementation and consultancy requirements for all Advent solutions, from the award-winning hedge fund solution Geneva, through to Advent’s wealth management suite, which includes Tradex, Moxy and Advent Portfolio Exchange (APX).

In addition to building its internal consulting team, Advent has extended strategic relationships with a number of leading consultancy firms across the region whose staff are Advent certified consultants and provide required quality of service to clients.

“We want to ensure our clients can count on us to help them improve their businesses with Advent solutions, and we have been extremely focused on initiatives to grow both our resources and our knowledge base in the region,” said Håkan Valberg, Senior Vice President and General Manager, Advent Software EMEA. “We are a committed partner to our clients in EMEA, and providing top quality implementations and consulting services is critical to bringing on new clients smoothly and developing long term relationships that support our mutual success. We are looking ahead to continue to develop capacity to serve even more to our clients.”
