Inside Addepar is a monthly round-up of Addepar platform updates, research insights and client, partner and company news.
We're introducing a new visualized ownership structure this month along with a new Global Security Master Entity Name attribute that enables users to see total exposure to a company. We also share more information about ongoing Community events, integration updates and how client Align Impact uses Addepar to scale efficiently. Read on to learn more.
Visualized Ownership Structure
Addepar’s ownership map displays a portfolio’s ownership structure as a tree so users can see the hierarchy of underlying assets. Users can interact with the graph to see additional details, such as selecting an entity to view its type, value and percent ownership. This map makes it easier to run analysis on underlying assets and to confirm an ownership structure when setting up new clients.

Quickly see total exposure to a company
Addepar users can apply the new Global Security Master Entity Name attribute as a filter to quickly see total portfolio exposure to a specific company or set of companies. In the following example, the asset table is filtered by Global Security Master Entity Name = "Microsoft Corporation" to show total portfolio exposure to Microsoft.

Research & Insights
The Addepar Investor Sentiment Index is a transactions-based index of high- and ultra-high-net-worth (U/HNW) investor sentiment data derived from U.S. equity transactions captured on the Addepar platform. March’s key observations include:
The March headline sentiment was moderately bearish at -2.0.
Net trading activity continued to be muted despite a rally in equity markets.
Investors rotated into consumer defensive and out of both technology and financial services.
Marketplace is a digital investment platform built for Addepar clients that offers a professionally curated menu of investment opportunities and solutions across private markets.
Our private company desk recently published the latest Secondary Market Scorecard that covers what our team saw in Q1. In the report, you'll find commentary on current market conditions across the secondary market, late-stage private funding and the IPO landscape.
As noted, buyer interest across our desk largely remained anchored at discounts to prior valuations and sell orders outweighed buy orders by approximately 2:1. While late-stage capital invested during Q1 continued to be significantly lower than prior averages, we started to see news of companies raising at reset valuations. Overall, investor sentiment broadly indicated that the secondary market can present compelling opportunities given limited primary funding and exit activity.
Marketplace is offered through Addepar’s affiliate broker-dealer, Acervus Securities, member FINRA/SIPC. To learn more about the private market capabilities in Marketplace or activity across the secondary market, contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
