Titan Asset Management is pleased to announce it has entered into a partnership agreement with Maplesden Griffin & Partners.
Maplesden Griffin & Partners is a leading consultancy that works with discretionary fund managers to help firms simplify and reduce the burden of the investment process. With locations in both the British Isles and the UAE, Maplesden Griffin & Partners has the scope and scale to support clients over multiple locations.
As part of the partnership, Titan Asset Management will work alongside Maplesden Griffin & Partners to create a new model portfolio strategy for the international market.
Titan Asset Management will provide access to model portfolios, which are run by CIO John Leiper and the investment team, and available across international platforms and wrappers. Advisers will also be able to access other areas of Titan’s wide expertise including DFM, direct equity strategies and alternatives.
John Leiper CIO of Titan Asset Management said: “Maplesden Griffin & Partners is an impressive firm, which has been evident since our first meeting. The partnership moves Titan into new markets which aligns with our strategic ambitions. We are excited to bring the unique Titan offering to the international market, and work alongside the team at Maplesden Griffin & Partners, supporting them on their journey.”
Tom Macpherson, Head of Portfolio Management, who recently joined Titan from LGT Vestra, where he ran the MPS strategies, reiterated John’s comments and added that this was the first phase of the Titan Groups expansion into the international adviser and private clients markets.
Mark Maplesden: “From the outset it has always been our intention to work with a panel of DFMs, but it was important to choose the right partners. We wanted to ensure their proposition differed from what we already had, but also complimented our existing offerings. Our partners are delighted to now welcome Titan to be a part of Maplesden Griffin & Partners and recognize how a panel approach will help to continue to drive the change we all know is needed in the expat space to ensure the underlying clients’ best interests are served.”
Nick Griffin: “Our two businesses were introduced by a former colleague of both myself and Mark and the conversations have been so positive from the outset and we cannot wait to start working with all of those at Titan. Like ourselves, Titan is an entrepreneurial business with extensive experience in the advisor space, and they are keen to work with us to now offer their expertise to the expat markets.”
