Lawson Conner adds Ireland and Luxembourg to AIFM offering

The Lawson Conner Group has passported its AIFM capabilities into both the Central Bank of Ireland and the Commission de Surveillance du Secteur Financier (CSSF) in Luxembourg.

 The firm can now launch asset management businesses and their associated investment funds in these two popular fund domiciles.
During Q1 of this year, Lawson Conner, through its full scope entity, launched an Irish domiciled QIAIF for a GBP220 million real estate manager, a European Credit hedge fund as an Irish ICAV, and also a long/short equity strategy out of Luxembourg in the form of a newly structured RAIF.
Andrew Frost, the firm’s director of investment management solutions, says: “Having the ability to offer our clients any fund domicile in the world and across all fund structures, including UCITS, has attracted interest from not only UK and European managers but also the US and Asia which has only been strengthened by the successful launch of Lawson Conner’s Singapore office in 2016.
“It is fantastic that when we are approached by a manager to launch their fund and they have a cornerstone investor wanting a Lux or Irish structure we can facilitate this through our award winning AIFM platform.
“The stable of solutions within the group can now can cater for all ranges of launches whether it be a Cayman hedge fund launch as a Segregated Portfolio Company (SPC) on our Discovery Investment Management Platform or a standalone fund structure in Ireland or Luxembourg, all bases are covered and the team is in place.”
