Founder & CEO – Titan Investment Management
Kenny Blickenstaff, MBA, CFA
After years in the institutionalized investment world as a Chartered Financial Analyst, I realized that people deserved a better investment solution for their future than what they were being offered through the traditional retail market.
When I started Titan Investment Management, I dedicated myself to building the best investment solution available that is built on four key elements – Relationship Focused, Deep Understanding of Client Needs, Disciplined Portfolio Construction, and Rigorous Oversight.
I am passionate about the markets and I am dedicated to bringing you a high-level investment solution. (Learn more about Kenny… )
Our work together is built on trust and a deep understanding of your needs and vision for the future. We are a fiduciary and carry the highest burden that our client interests’ are the only interests.
Before we invest any money for a client, we will work with you personally to understand your needs, identify your goals, evaluate your risk tolerance risk, and determine your time horizon.
Disciplined Portfolio Construction
Our portfolio construction is second to none. We leverage exposure to an appropriate mix of traditional and nontraditional assets. Maximizing the interplay of sectors, industries, and countries.
When implementing a client’s investment strategy, a stringent process to screen the existing portfolio, as well as new ideas, is constantly exercised, selecting only those that meet the underlying conviction of Titan.
With experience across all market conditions and cycles, we thrive in both turbulent as well as exuberant markets, and we strive to provide a solution that will exceed your expectations
Titan Investment Management
Our Approach & Philosophy
Our goal at Titan is to deliver customized, thoughtful investment solutions with competitive performance, relevant insights, and a clear analysis of results and fees. With experience in both turbulent as well as exuberant markets we have the solutions to fit the personal, customized needs of the client
The Titan Difference
Retail investment products are composed of mutual funds that have been created as a mass-market solution that is easily sold by brokers to their established customer base.
Besides having additional hidden and complicated costs, mutual funds come with little accountability as the mutual fund manager is the one making the actual investment selection with the broker or investment advisor having no say in the security selection. Lastly, many mutual funds are used to simply replicate the performance of the overall markets. They are sold as a “safe solution” to the retail market.
Our Competitive Advantage – Titan’s Three Tier Model
At Titan, we know you deserve better than a portfolio filled with mutual funds. The Titan portfolio is designed with three tiers that are composed of only high-grade equities and bonds. This design structure keeps costs down and provides maximum return across all market conditions while managing risk and draw-down.
The first tier serves as the core foundation of the portfolio. This foundation is composed by algorithms that seek to target a certain universe of investmetns that not only exhibit profitability, but do so with little debt. The second tier is our in-house cash flow analysis. We do not believe in assuming the capital structure of a given firm remains constant. Instead we not only project out cashlfow, but the capital structure expected to be created overtime. Lastly, our third tier leans into 3rd party research. While we lead with our own conviction and process it is important to remain humble and take note of any variable we might have overlooked.
This three-tier approach allows Titan to remain agile and responsive to market conditions, it allows us to harvest taxes to your advantage, and more importantly, it allows us to optimize return while managing risk in a much more sophisticated and thoughtful manner.
Understanding this distinction is critical for your performance, your success, and your future.
Our Philosophy is Built on Five Pillars
Titan is an investment management firm. We provide a holistic, single solution for investing, not half baked solutions across a host of finanical matters.
Titan manages it’s investments in house. No more mutual funds. This not only makes Titan accoutable to the investmetn deicison, but saves our clients from unnecessary fees.
Put simply, we won the exact same equities as our clients. We believe it putting your money where your mouth is.
Per our Three Tier Model we pride ourselves in the underlying research and idea that goes into each one of our investment holdings.
Titan’s core solution is altered to reflect the risk profile of each individual client.
“I put the future of my family and my personal wealth in the same equities as my clients. I believe this conveys an additional level of conviction and transparency”

Meet Your Team
Kenny Blickenstaff, CFA, MBA
There’s that one guy you can just feel his competitive nature and fierce intellect as soon as he walks into the room. Then you smile because you know he works for you.
Born and raised in Lafayette, Indiana, Kenny completed his undergraduate studies at Purdue University in 2008 with a Bachelor of Science in Business Administration. Immediately following graduation, he began pursuing his Chartered Financial Analyst designation and employment at Charles Schwab as a broker. He then moved on to become an investment analyst for Purdue Federal Credit Union and completed his CFA designation, passing each level on his first attempt.
After completion of the CFA, he began working for Busey Wealth Management as a Fixed Income analyst and eventually moved on to become a Portfolio Manager and Vice President of Investment Management playing a key role in the management of a $6 Billion multi-family fund. While working for Busey, he also began pursuing his MBA at the University Of Chicago Booth School Of Business on nights and weekends.
This pursuit eventually led him to Chicago where he began employment as a Fixed Income Analyst for Geneva Advisors (now CIBC) and took on an advisory role with all equity products. After graduating from the University of Chicago Booth with his MBA in June 2016, he was promoted to Portfolio Manager, eventually overseeing the security selection of over $1.5 billion in assets.
Ten years of education and experience ultimately led to the inception and creation of Titan Investment Management in 2018 – an amalgamation of investment experience, continual education, and forward-thinking strategies.
Kenny now lives in Zionsville, Indiana with his wife, Jordan, and their three daughters. He enjoys spending time with his family, outdoor sports, reading, and exercise in his spare time.
