Titan and Flat World have created a partnership aimed at filling an ESG gap in the hedge fund market. Together, we build solutions that accelerate the flow of capital toward high-quality managers who effectively and transparently integrate ESG principles into their investment research process and exhibit strong values as a firm.
Titan applies its institutional hedge fund research and portfolio construction process in order to identify highly talented managers and build an alternatives portfolio with diversified risk exposures. Flat World conducts deep and integrated ESG manager assessments based on industry and sector positions, providing guidance for ESG compatibility at the portfolio and business management levels. This partnership seeks to target additional alpha through investment process and risk analysis of ESG issues within each manager’s strategy.
Titan and Flat World focus on creating new benchmarks for hedge funds at both the firm and portfolio level. Specifically, we seek opportunities to increase the implementation of ESG investment research such as climate risk assessments, while at the same time improve diversity and gender pay gap figures. We believe this multi-faceted approach will separate the authentic managers from those simply looking to appeal to growing investor interest in sustainable funds.
