Investors

We pride ourselves on playing an important role within the private investor community and hold the belief that the strength of the relationships built with both investors and providers alike prosper, thanks to mutual respect and high levels of professionalism.

Titan Alternatives attracts investors from a range of backgrounds including a growing number that have escaped the City to set up their own ventures or are simply enjoying early retirement. All of our investors are able to certify as high net worth individuals, sophisticated investors or in some cases opt up to elective professional status based on their knowledge and experience.

Investors requirements can differ enormously underlying why the need to provide a personal service is paramount to the success of our business.

 

Long-term investors recognise the benefit of being at the heart of our community. They enjoy a trusted two-way relationship that can afford them the highest level of service, a well-researched deal flow, administrative assistance, and continued reporting for the life of an investment.

Investors have also voiced their reassurance in knowing that members of Titan Alternatives (formerly Haibun Wealth) will often make personal investments in the companies and sit parri-passu with them, aligning interests and forging a closer understanding of an investor’s journey.

One of the most rewarding aspects of our business is the appreciation of investors and our continuing growth thanks to their referrals and personal introductions.
