SS&C recently announced that it has entered into an agreement to acquire Advent Software. This follows the acquisition of DST Global Solutions in December. Both of these acquisitions build on our mission to offer global financial services organizations the greatest depth and breadth of investment accounting and business process expertise, software technology, and software enabled services.

Over the past 29 years, SS&C has enjoyed a successful acquisition strategy in the financial services software business. Why? – Because we don’t buy companies simply to add customers and revenue streams. Instead we pursue organizations that can add specialized expertise, management skills, technological innovation, and fresh perspective. Our goal is to make them better, and provide added value for all our users through new enhancements and complementary product and service offerings.

With the acquisition of Advent, and DST Global Solutions, I feel there is a huge opportunity for SS&C to lead a wave of innovation in the investment management industry, improve our visibility into the evolution of the market, and enable us to enhance your overall operations and customer experience. Thank you for choosing SS&C. Our customers have always been at the heart of everything we do, and I am confident that this new chapter will provide you even greater solutions to support your growth and success.


Sincerely,

Bill Stone
Chairman and Chief Executive Officer
