About Sidekick

Sidekick is on a mission to democratise the wealth-building products and opportunities currently only accessible to high net worth individuals. We are seeing a generational cultural shift where more people than ever before are looking for investment opportunities to help them build wealth. But for those of us not in the wealthiest 1%, we’re limited to passive indexes/ETFs or higher risk direct stock picking.

We’re building a next-generation investment platform, designed for the aspirational mass-affluent investor, who wants to build wealth. We’re rethinking and restructuring investment products starting with actively managed baskets of public equities and crypto, and a portfolio line of credit to help customers hold longer term and access liquidity if needed. We have a team of experts who have the experience and market knowledge to manage a number of portfolios tailored to your risk appetite, with a focus on building long-term wealth.

We’re based in London and are committed to supporting flexible working arrangements. We encourage and facilitate regular in-person get-togethers to collaborate and to get to know one another. Our aim is to create an open and collaborative working environment that has the flexibility needed by our people to maintain a balance in their individual lifestyles.
