Video transcript

A mutual fund is a type of investment that pools a group of investor's capital to access a bundle of stocks, bonds or other securities. Another way to put it, they offer investors access to certain styles of investing, like large company stocks, municipal bonds, value stocks, international stocks, and so on. Mutual funds are typically actively managed, which means there's a person or a team of people managing the investments, and they have discretion to make decisions on what goes in and out of the fund. As a result of the active management by humans, mutual funds tend to charge higher fees than index funds. Money invested grows when the value of the fund increases based on gains in the underlying assets.

The securities the fund owns also generate dividends and interest, which the fund passes through and distributes to shareholders. Additionally, you and other investors receive a share of the proceeds when mutual funds sell securities. To be frank, at Titan we view mutual funds as a VHS tape because of their black box experience of what's inside. Layers of financial costs and the slow and expensive cost to create them. They help lay the foundation for where investment products are today, but they're not the future.

Titan Flagship is our U.S. large cap growth strategy, invested in 15-25 stocks on the long side. These are high-quality businesses vetted through deep fundamental research by our Portfolio Manager and Research team. The Flagship portfolio is updated when the Portfolio Manager sees a better risk/reward opportunity than an existing portfolio holding(s). The Flagship strategy is long-term focused with low turnover, which means typically only a few stocks change each quarter. On the short side, clients have personalized downside protection via a market index hedge. Titan Opportunities is our U.S. small/mid cap growth strategy. Titan Offshore is our international growth strategy. Titan Crypto is our cryptocurrency strategy.

Is Titan a hedge fund?

No. You are not investing in a hedge fund. Hedge funds pool their investors’ dollars together and each investor is treated the same. We keep your money in your own individual account and personalize this based on your risk tolerance and investment goals. Titan invests you like an active manager, with the personalization of an advisor in your pocket.

Is Titan available outside the US?

We are currently only available to U.S. citizens, green card holders, and holders of certain visas. Our clients must have a U.S. residential mailing address. We hope to expand internationally in the future and will let you know when we do.
