WASHINGTON -- March 14, 2013

SapientNitro, part of Sapient (NASDAQ: SAPE), and Brown Advisory, an
independent investment firm that is committed to delivering first-class
investment performance, strategic advice and the highest level of client
service, today announced the launch of TouchPoint, a new client web portal
that extends into a digital environment the standard-setting level of customer
experience that Brown Advisory is known for.

“TouchPoint reflects Brown Advisory’s dedication to client service and
transparency,” said Michael D. Hankin, President and CEO of Brown Advisory.
“We knew that we owed the institutions, families and advisors we serve the
ability to access and customize their portfolios in ways that are most
valuable to them. In a world where the lines between physical and digital are
blurring, we turned to SapientNitro to apply their top-notch creative, brand
and digital expertise to ensure that our clients receive the same superior
service and trusted Brown Advisory experience regardless of where and how they
engage us—at home, at work, or on-the-fly.”

TouchPoint allows clients to connect securely to Brown Advisory and access
timely information about their portfolios and progress toward their financial
goals. The new portal, designed to better serve today’s always-on consumer,
features omni-channel, multiple-device support and state-of-the-art
functionality, including daily data overviews, visually rich market updates
and the most advanced Internet security, helping to keep Brown Advisory and
its clients safe and secure.

“Creating a seamless client experience that reflects Brown Advisory’s values
and commitment to service across touchpoints was a top priority, but the
challenge lay in how to make the product engaging and intuitive while
protecting the security of clients’ financial data,” said Deepak Sobhani, vice
president of SapientNitro. “TouchPoint is a great example of how we are
working in partnership with our clients to leverage the best of brand
creative, digital engagement, and technology expertise to navigate this new
digitized, borderless world.”
