Titanbay and Mercer expand collaboration

by Matthias Plötz 14 October 2022

Private markets investment platform Titanbay and asset management firm Mercer have expanded their collaboration, hoping to further improve Titanbay’s fund selection and due diligence process.

This expansion sees Titanbay gaining access to Mercer’s research on managers across all private market asset classes. Additionally, Mercer will provide its fund ratings and investment due diligence summaries to wealth managers and private banks through the Titanbay platform.

“Our recent global survey of wealth managers found that 73% of respondents are either currently invested or considering investing in illiquid assets over the next 12 months,” said Amit Popat, partner at Mercer and head of wealth management and endowments & foundations for Europe and AMEA. “Through our combined offer, we continue to provide unprecedented access to attractive investment opportunities in markets and segments that were traditionally the preserve of institutional investors.”

A senior Mercer alternatives investment professional will join Titanbay’s advisory board.

The parties initially partnered back in 2021, with the aim of enabling wealth managers to access Mercer through the Titanbay platform and assist with the construction of portfolios.

Titanbay’s CEO, Thomas Eskebaek, added: “Alongside better access, we know that due diligence is absolutely critical for wealth managers to feel confident in recommending private markets investments to their clients. By working even more closely with Mercer, our partners and investors can have total confidence that our portfolio of funds are among the most respected in the industry, as we pursue our shared commitment to widening access to the asset class.”

Launched in 2020, Titanbay is a private markets investment platform aimed at supporting professional investing in private markets with analytics and a streamlined on-boarding process.

To learn more about the platform, we sat down with Eskebaek just after the initial launch.
