- Azimut Investment Management is one of the largest External Asset Managers (EAM) in Singapore
- Onboarding allows for second-generation high net worth young investors to transact on Tiger Brokers’ platform, while having financial oversight from Azimut Investment Management’s financial advisers
SINGAPORE, 4 August 2022 – Online trading platform Tiger Brokers (Singapore) today announced its partnership with Azimut Investment Management (“Azimut”), a wholly-owned subsidiary of one of Europe's leading independent asset managers, Azimut Group (AZM.MI), bringing Tiger Brokers’ next generation technology platform to Azimut’s clients.
The partnership will see the onboarding of Azimut funds onto Tiger Brokers platform and will provide Azimut customers with the autonomy to seamlessly invest in a wide range of products on offer on the Tiger Brokers platform. Tiger Brokers users will benefit from increased choice from the additional funds on offer which include active Equities, Bonds, Asset Allocation and Alternatives strategies accessible as UCITS funds and Azimut's two newly launched VCC funds, Singapore Diversified Fund, an Active Singapore balanced strategy with income distribution, and Sestante Global Diversified Fund, an All-weather Global unconstrained strategy.
The collaboration will allow Azimut customers to perform transactions independently without engaging an Azimut intermediary to implement investment decisions on their behalf. This will streamline the investment management process and enable Azimut customers to execute investment decisions in real-time. In addition, customer accounts that require active management from Azimut relationship managers will also be easily accessible via the Tiger Brokers platform, allowing for seamless trading and efficient account management.
Azimut’s 2nd generation customers are typically younger, tech-savvy, high net worth individuals who seek growing autonomy in their investment decisions but also benefit from continued advice from relationship managers to maximise the returns on their invested assets.
Grace Yong, Business Development Director at Tiger Brokers (Singapore) commented, “We are pleased to announce our partnership with Azimut Investment Management and look forward to extending our next-generation technology platform to Azimut’s customer base. Our partnership with Azimut will not only streamline the investing process for Azimut’s customers, but will also serve to increase the portfolio of products available on Tiger Brokers’ platform, for our existing users. We continue to use our next-generation technology to offer investors low cost and unrivalled access to a fast-growing suite of investments products, across a wide range of securities and funds.”
Andrea Ciaccio, CEO, Azimut Investment Management, says, “Our partnership with Tiger Brokers marks an exciting step for Azimut Investment Management. We continually look at ways to improve our processes and offerings for our client base and believe that our collaboration with Tiger Brokers will provide our customers with the unique opportunity to combine the ability to trade autonomously with continued advice from our experienced team of wealth management professionals.”
