Jonathan Wauton, Chief Investment Officer & Co-Founder of Tiller, said: “We said from the start that Tiller is a company of investment professionals who have embraced technology rather than the other way around. A very important part of our offering, and in many ways our differentiator to other online wealth managers, is the knowledge and experience of our investment team. I am pleased that we have been able to attract the type of talent Doug, Shezad, Glenn and Daniel bring to Tiller. Between them they have worked at some of the most well-known or successful asset managers in the world and their expertise will serve to benefit Tiller’s discerning clients who are looking for a premium online wealth manager and more control over their investments.”
