About us

At Aptitude we love complexity.

Every business is made up of millions of little details that make them different from anyone else on the planet. Finding the joy in this complexity can be the difference between the mundane and the magnificent – which is why we commit to getting to know every single business we work with inside and out.

Immersing ourselves in the intricacies of finance digitization, subscription management, compliance, and revenue management gives us the power to make a real impact. Once we understand how an organization works, we can implement solutions that provide the clarity, confidence, and control they need to drive growth and achieve their ambitions.

Aptitude are currently serving over 75 CFOs whose organizations generate a combined revenue of over $1 Trillion.

We are growing our team with smart, motivated, passionate people who share our three core values – being one think ahead, being the guru and being the difference. We are proud of the team we’re building, and believe diverse experiences and perspectives build stronger teams and better products.

Headquartered in London, we have five office locations around the world with clients across four continents
