Fundpath Signals Growth Ambitions With Hires, Capital Infusion

The UK-based firm has been boosted with VC financing and has announced a range of hires.

Fundpath, the data and business intelligence firm for asset and wealth managers launched in 2021, has appointed Adam Harrison (pictured) as chief growth officer, along with three other hires. 

Harrison previously worked at Titan Bay, where he was a member of its founding team and chief commercial officer of private markets.

With a career in funds distribution spanning more than 20 years, Harrison was also a founder of World Golf Group, the precedent for LIV Golf. He has also held senior positions with Standard Life UK as investment director, global financial institutions and with Capital Group as MD for global financial institutions.

Fundpath recently wrapped up a £4 million ($5.09 million) late seed funding round with Fuel Ventures, the UK venture capital business.

Besides Harrison, the other hires are: 

-- Flora Scott, chief marketing officer, formerly communications and marketing head for Redwheel; 
-- Jim Way, senior relationship manager, with 24 years of sales experience in asset management. Most recently, Way was at Invesco; and
-- Stephen Capon, senior RM, who spent the last 20 years working with investment funds and solutions at Ninety One Asset Management.

Fundpath said that about 350 wealth management organisations now share their data and business information, and more than 70 asset managers have signed up as clients.

“We simply use the power of real time, accurate and whole-of-industry data to share information across the whole fund distribution ecosystem to enable more targeted, more effective communication between the buyers and sellers of funds,” co-founder and CEO, Jamie Hinchliffe, said.
