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.
