I am looking forward to working closely with Gareth to apply his impressive industry credentials to our mission of improving access to private markets.”
Gareth Read, Chief Operating Officer at Titanbay, said: “Having established itself as a partner of choice for GPs, smaller institutions and wealth managers alike, Titanbay has reached an inflexion point in its growth.
