TSL Investments Management Limited
TIM's services were launched in January of 2011 as a service line within TSL, providing personal asset management largely for medium and high net worth investors. Due to excellent performance, just nine months later, TSL decided to spin off TIM's offerings into a separate entity and as a result TIM was born. Currently, TIM manages Discretionary/ Separately Managed Accounts (SMA) for both retail and institutional investors, and is in the process of registering two funds: TIM Stable Income Fund and TIM Balanced Growth Fund, which will cater to retail income and investment growth needs.
