Ex-Credit Suisse MD Laret To Titan

Jul 10 2014 | 9:47am ET

Titan Advisors has tapped Credit Suisse vet Herman Laret as a senior research analyst on its manager research global macro team.

Laret brings 24 years of experience to the Rye Brook, N.Y.-based fund of funds which manages in excess of $4 billion.

“Herman is a powerful addition to the firm’s research team,” said Tom Holliday, Titan CIO, in a statement. “His depth of experience and industry contacts will further enhance our capacity to source the hedge fund industry’s most promising management talent.”  

Laret was a managing director in global cross-asset macro product sales at Credit Suisse and had previously served as co-head of interest rate sales and as treasury product manager. He had two stints totaling nearly 14 years at Credit Suisse, separated by a three-year period as a partner and senior portfolio manager at MKP Capital trading G10 rates products.

Laret began his career in 1990 on the mergers and acquisitions desk at Salomon Brothers in London, before transferring to Salomon’s New York office to become a government bond trader.

Established in 2001, Titan Advisors is one of the largest independent fund of funds firms in the United States, providing institutional and high-net-worth investors with both commingled and custom portfolios of hedge fund managers. Allocating mostly to long/short equity, global macro/commodity, and event-driven strategies, Titan seeks to generate attractive, risk-adjusted returns over time.
