Gardiner Garrard, CFA, is a founding partner of TTV Capital, an Atlanta-based, early stage venture capital firm with a focus on investing in fintech companies – backing entrepreneurs that build fintech applications on modern technology infrastructure. The modern technologies include the cloud, data, social, and mobile. TTV was founded in 2000 as one of the first early stage venture firms to focus on fintech, and has invested in 45 fintech companies across the payments, banking, capital markets, data analytics, and security sectors.

TTV has $260 million in assets under management across four funds. We are currently investing out of our fourth fund, which we finished raising earlier this year. Our investor base is a mix of strategic financial services firms such as TSYS and Global Payments, institutional investors such as endowments, foundations and sovereign wealth fund, family offices, and entrepreneurs we have backed.
