MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., March 19, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Addepar, a leading technology platform for wealth management, announced an investment of $40 million by WestCap Group ("WestCap"). The investment was led by Laurence Tosi ("L.T."), a member of Addepar's Board of Directors for the past two years as well as WestCap's founder and managing partner, and by Scott Ganeles, senior partner at WestCap. As longtime partners, Tosi and Ganeles also co-founded iPreo, a leading capital markets fintech company.
"This latest financing from WestCap helps Addepar expand on the value we bring to our clients, which has fueled our growth trajectory over the past decade," said CEO Eric Poirier. "Our cloud-based data aggregation, analytics and reporting solution empowers Addepar's clients to give each of their clients a clear and complete understanding of their investment portfolio, from anywhere at any time. These capabilities are an absolute requirement in today's market environment, and our team's commitment to this problem space is stronger now than ever. With over $1.7 trillion in assets now managed on Addepar by some of the world's most respected firms, we have many opportunities to add to our offerings and deliver unmatched and lasting value to advisors and wealth managers. We're grateful for L.T.'s support over the years and are excited for the additional operating expertise and guidance contributed by Scott and the truly world class team at WestCap."
Addepar will use the additional capital to continue investing heavily in research and development, market expansion and building on its industry leading platform which has set the company apart in an increasingly competitive space.
"Addepar was created in response to the 2008 financial crisis and is uniquely poised to provide solutions and insights during times of extreme market volatility as we're seeing today. As we learned from our experiences with founding and scaling iLevel and iPreo, risk management software is a counter cyclical investment," said L.T. WestCap's Scott Ganeles added, "Having operated and grown fintech companies serving both public and private markets for the last 30 years, I am highly confident in Addepar's trajectory – the company is perfectly positioned to arm advisors and investors with the best data, technology and products in order to make confident, data-driven decisions in a scalable way.
