Addepar is a global tech and data company that was established to address the needs of complex portfolios, today serving single-family offices, wealth managers, investment advisors, banks, broker dealers and institutional portfolio managers around the world. We have grown rapidly over the past 14 years and now support nearly $5T assets on platform from over 6.6M custody accounts processed daily across more than 40 countries. Forbes Fintech 50 2023 declared Addepar one of the most innovative firms serving the back office needs of Wall Street and other large enterprises.
The office in Edinburgh, our first office outside of the U.S. and now one of eight global locations, was opened early in 2021 to establish a European foothold and build from there. Edinburgh met all our criteria, particularly the city’s tech talent with a highly educated pool of software engineers holding computer and data science degrees from world-class universities. The culture of innovation and the growing tech hub, and the city’s connection to the financial services industry put a finer point on our decision.
We are continuously seeking top talent and look forward to building a thriving team here.
The work is cutting edge. Addepar offers unsurpassed visibility into a traditionally opaque investment ecosystem, delivering a tailored, cohesive and timely view of even the largest, most complex portfolios. Only Addepar has built a solution to see the past, the present and the future across a full spectrum of asset classes, enriched with data-driven insights for smarter decision-making, enhanced portfolio management and thoughtful guidance.

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 Yet many firms are forced to rely on outdated legacy systems that can’t scale, and the most pervasive financial technology, globally, is still Excel.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 was founded over a decade ago with the goal of creating a more transparent financial system. 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.
We provide wealth managers with real-time portfolio reporting and insights required to make and implement better investment decisions. By helping people achieve the best possible outcomes, we aim to get more assets flowing into more impactful investments and ideas, benefiting our society as a whole.
