Flat World Titan LLC launches the Titan Eclipse Fund LP, a multi manager portfolio dedicated towards Impact and Sustainability

STAMFORD, Conn., Dec. 01, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Flat World Titan LLC is a Woman Run Organization and is a Joint Venture between Titan Advisors, LLC and Flat World Partners. Titan is a registered investment advisor based in Stamford, CT, with over $4.5 billion of assets under management and its partner, Flat World Partners, is an institutional advisory and asset management firm focused on sustainable investments. The Fund seeks to be among the first hedge fund vehicles to move the ESG mandate forward by partnering with institutional managers to incorporate Diversity and ESG issues. The Fund aims to 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.

Flat World Titan LLC will seek opportunities to increase the implementation of ESG investment research, such as climate risk assessments, while improving diversity and reducing the gender pay gap. This all-encompassing approach will separate the authentic managers from those simply looking to appeal to growing investor interest in sustainable funds.

The partnership will combine Titan’s experience in manager selection and portfolio construction with Flat World Partner’s technology platform, YvesBlue, that provides transparent, material analysis of a portfolio’s environmental and social impact. The technology allows investors to upload their investment portfolio and have a clear understanding of their holdings’ carbon footprint, including data on whether it is contributing towards the United Nation’s Sustainable Development Goals, and most importantly how it stacks up to standard indexes, among other features.

Titan assumed the management of several of Alternative Investment Group’s Funds

AIG was founded in 1996 by the late David Storrs who was the first Yale University endowment director and later President of The Common Fund, and Stewart Greenfield, who was the co-founder of Oak Investment Partners. The firm has a long history of profitable investing in hedge funds and has been successfully managing funds for the last 24 years. During that time, they built a tremendous brand and served their investors well.

Sam Sussman has joined Titan as part of the AIG transaction as Portfolio Manager. Prior to joining Titan, Sam was a Partner, Portfolio Manager, and Head of Investment Strategy at Alternative Investment Group, which he joined in 2012. At AIG, Sam was responsible for directing the firm’s top-down research, identifying investment opportunities across strategies, industry sectors, and geographies. Previously, Sam was a Partner and Director of Research at Cadogan Management, a global hedge fund investment firm. Before Cadogan, Sam was a Senior Managing Director at Bear Stearns, where he spent nearly 13 years in the firm’s securitized products area. Sam holds a B.A., Magna Cum Laude, from Yale University and an MBA from Harvard Business School.

Sussman commented, “I look forward to working with Titan’s experienced investment team and continuing to deliver for our investors the strong risk-adjusted returns that have always defined our strategy. The investment approach will not change as a result of the transaction and the Funds will continue to be managed to bring our investors the consistent results that we have generated over our history.”

“Alternative Investment Group was founded in 1996 by the late David Storrs who was the first Yale University endowment director and later President of The Common Fund, a then-$25 billion manager-of-managers providing investment programs for educational institutions and Stewart Greenfield who was the co-founder of Oak Investment Partners, one of the most successful U.S. venture capital firms. The firm has a long history of profitable investing in hedge funds and has been successfully running funds for the last 24 years. During that time, they have built a tremendous brand and served their investors well. It is an honor for Titan to be able to work with them and their investors. We expect the integration of the Funds into Titan to be seamless, aided by having similar philosophies and fundamental investment approaches,” said George Fox, Founder and President of Titan Advisors.

Titan Partners with Flat World to Fill an Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) Gap in the Hedge Fund Market

Titan Advisors (“Titan”) and Flat World Partners (“Flat World”), an institutional advisory and asset management firm focused on sustainable investments, have created a partnership aimed at filling an ESG gap in the hedge fund market.  Together, we will 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.

“We’re thrilled to team with Titan Advisors and collaborate on solutions designed to move the hedge fund industry forward,” said Anna-Marie Wascher, Founder and CEO of Flat World Partners. “For too long hedge funds have lagged their peers in promoting positive social and environmental values within the workplace and investment processes, and we aim to set new standards for the industry and investors.”

Titan will apply 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 will conduct 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 proven strategy.

The partnership focuses 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.

“As institutional investors increasingly adhere to their stakeholders’ demands for their values to be reflected in their investments, the managers they work with are being forced to evolve,” said George Fox, President of Titan Advisors. “We’re excited to team up with a firm such as Flat World that shares our forward-looking approach, to develop a first-of-its kind strategy aimed at providing institutional-quality offerings for investors to allocate toward managers with proven track records and approaches to ESG integration.”
