SGG acquires Lawson Connor

regulation and compliance SGG Group, an investor services provider, has acquired Lawson Conner, a London-based regulatory and compliance outsourcing firm.

Lawson Conner operates a platform that uses ‘regtech’ to deliver compliance and regulatory solutions to institutional clients.

Among its offerings is a UK-regulated alternative investment fund management platform and SGG said the acquisition would strengthen SGG’s alternative investment capabilities in the European institutional investors’ market.

In December last year, Lawson Connor entered a partnership with Luxembourg-based Fuchs Asset Management, a ‘ManCo’ provider, to extend Fuchs’s services in the UK.

SGG Group has about $250 billion of assets under administration.
