Private markets investment platform Titanbay has appointed Gareth Read as chief operating officer.
Read, formerly a managing director at Barings, will take on responsibility for Titanbay’s operational infrastructure. This includes fund operations and investor services, as well as working closely with the technology team to digitise operational processes.
In addition, he will lead development of the Titanbay find structures to aid geographical expansion alongside dealing with regulatory compliance.
Thomas Eskebaek, CEO of Titanbay commented: “Gareth brings valuable expertise to our senior team to equip us for the next stage in our growth – namely through geographic expansion and the digitisation of key processes as we scale our operations. I am looking forward to working closely with Gareth to apply his impressive industry credentials to our mission of improving access to private markets.”
Read added: “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. I am delighted to be joining Thomas and the rest of the team to help scale the business to deliver that same first-class proposition to more clients around the world.”
