The Titan Platform has been designed by Advanced Alternative Investments Systems Limited. The company is privately held, including ownership by the two principals who started up the company who now hold the CEO and CTO roles. Our goal is to become the leading back office system for the finance industry – for hedge funds, partnerships, company managers, insurance, private equity and other financial institutions.
Our goal is not to get into any of the industries we serve such as fund administration. The industry has enough quality companies in these service provider areas – what our industry needs is the technology to allow them to continue to provide high quality service but in an efficient and cost-effective manner. Technology should be providing you with the advantage, not limiting you. Industry demand has grown and legacy technology hasn’t been able to keep up.
We are here to fill that gap.
In fund administration, keeping up with client demands often means having staff do mundane tasks that should be automated, putting resources into additional review time because of non-integrated programs, hiring report-writing departments to be able to keep up with the simple demands of clients, hiring in-house programmers to develop and then update proprietary software every time there is an upgrade to core software.
Many fund administrators have excellent client service which is amazing given the barriers their own technology present. Our view is that our technology is there to help, not cost you more money because of the gap between expectations and reality.
