30 Leading Companies of the Year 2021
“We believe that everyone should be able to understand the assets they own, where they’re invested and how they’re performing, at any given moment.”
The world of finance is in the midst of a seismic transformation. Large pools of capital dominate global financial markets. Yet many firms are forced to rely on outdated legacy systems that can’t scale, and the most pervasive financial technology, globally, is still Excel. As a result, many asset owners are challenged to answer the most basic questions and take timely action on their investments.
Addepar is a wealth management platform that specializes in data aggregation, analytics and reporting for even the most complex investment portfolios. Founded in 2009 by Joe Lonsdale, who currently serves as an active Chairman of its Board of Directors and General Partner at 8VC, the company's platform aggregates portfolio, market and client data all in one place. It provides asset owners and advisors a clearer financial picture at every level, allowing them to make more informed and timely investment decisions. Addepar works with hundreds of leading financial advisors, family offices and large financial institutions that manage data for over $2.5 trillion of assets on the company's platform. In 2020, Addepar was named as a Forbes Fintech 50 company and honored as a member of the CB Insights Fintech 250.
The company is headquartered in Silicon Valley and has offices in New York City, Salt Lake City and Edinburgh.
