About us

As the voice of women’s wealth, it has never been business as usual for Addidi and its founder Anna Sofat.

 

Anna set up Addidi in partnership with her husband Janardan in 2008. She didn’t much like the hard sell, opaque products, all-about-the-bottom line world of the financial services industry, so she set out to redefine the culture of wealth by creating a sustainable business with women at its heart.

 

Her vision was to help women grow their wealth, build their businesses, nurture their families and lead richer lives. The business and Anna have won numerous awards for their forward-thinking approach and excellent service.

 

Addidi continues to nurture its independence and work for a more equal, balanced and sustainable future in collaboration with its clients.

 

Addidi is beautifully different.
