Advisers sell Prism stake as Paradigm manager takes control

Tatton Capital, an independent asset management business set up and owned by advisory network Paradigm, has bought out the stakes it did not already hold in fund management venture Prism from a co-founding group of advisory firms and Octopus Investments.

Following the acquisition, Prism will be wholly owned by Tatton Capital, with co-founder Octopus continuing to be the investment manager of the existing four funds.

Prism, which has £270m of assets under management, was launched in 2009 as a joint venture arrangement between Paradigm, Octopus Investments and a group of adviser firms. The business currently manages four risk-rated multi-manager funds.
