SGG Group - the global financial services provider that is set to buy First Names Group- has acquired Lawson Conner, a London-based provider of regulatory infrastructure software and managed compliance services to the global investment industry, subject to regulatory approval.
SGG Group acquired 2018 eprivateclient Top Trust Company First Names Group from private equity investors AnaCap Financial Partners in December last year. The transaction, which is subject to regulatory approval, means that SGG Group will become, by revenue, the world’s fourth largest provider of trust, corporate and fund services and will see the combined group grow to a global business of 1,700 people operating across 23 jurisdictions including Asia.
This new acquisition of Lawson Conner, which is expected to be completed by August 2018, will strengthen SGG’s service offering to institutional clients through the provision of a complete suite of compliance and regulatory services.
Lawson Conner’s technology platform uses RegTech solutions to deliver end-to-end compliance and regulatory solutions to institutional clients, from establishing and maintaining a robust compliance framework, providing ongoing regulatory reporting at the individual, firm and fund level, and enabling the conduct of regulatory activities through its Financial Conduct Authority regulated AIFM platform.
SGG Group provides investor services which include administrative and accounting solutions to investment funds, multinational corporations and family offices.
