Ridgeline is the industry cloud platform for investment management. It started in 2017 where its legacy vendor competitors could not: with a clean sheet of paper and a bold question, “How can technology make this experience better?” Ridgeline is uniquely positioned to provide investment managers something new: modern technology purpose-built for their industry.

Ridgeline was founded by visionary software entrepreneur Dave Duffield. As he’d done with past enterprise ventures Workday and Peoplesoft, Duffield sought to apply his successful playbook of solving operational business challenges with bold innovation and human connectivity. With Ridgeline, he and a team of more than 300 technologists and industry experts are applying that formula to the complex needs of investment management.

Ridgeline has thoroughly reimagined every aspect of the investment management lifecycle. By bringing the industry’s six core functions (trading and settlement, portfolio accounting, portfolio management, compliance, reporting, and client management) onto a single, cloud-native platform, Ridgeline effectively eliminates the resource drain, overhead, and operational headaches of managing multiple separate systems and data sets. Headquartered in Lake Tahoe with offices in Reno, the Bay Area, and Manhattan, Ridgeline is proud to have built a fast-growing, people-first company that has been recognized by Inc. Magazine and Glassdoor as a “Best Place to Work” and by LinkedIn as a “Top U.S. Startup.”
