A private partnership devoted solely to asset management.

Our aim is to produce superior long-term performance for our investors and provide exceptional client service.

Overview

Tim Tacchi founded TT international in 1988, initially managing European equity long/short money.  Two years later we began managing our first active international equity account and thus the basic structure of the firm took shape. Into our third decade, and TT International now manages many billions of dollars in a broad product suite for sophisticated institutional investment clients across the world. While headquartered in London, we have an investment research office in Hong Kong and an office in New York specialising in marketing and client servicing.

Genuine active management is our raison d'être.  Everything we do – without exception – aims to produce attractive returns for investors. To achieve this, we are structured as a private partnership. This aligns our interests with clients and enables us to award equity in order to attract leading investment professionals. 

To further align our interests, both partners and employees invest their own assets alongside those of our clients. 

Moreover, we believe that investment performance suffers from diseconomies of scale if assets under management grow too large. We therefore maintain our size advantage for clients by limiting the available capacity in all of our funds.
