Laven launches New York office
Posted on 4 Oct 2011
Laven Partners, the structuring, regulatory and due diligence consultancy firm dedicated to the alternative investment industry, has opened an office in New York.
The new office, located at 260 Madison Avenue and headed by CEO Jerome Lussan, will service as the US base for the firm as it continues its global expansion.
Max Ferri, Head of Operational Due Diligence of Laven Partners will be meeting with clients and service providers in New York for the next two weeks, joined by Alexandra Tzalla, Manager of Laven Legal Services.
Lussan comments: “This expansion is the result of increased interest from both US based managers expanding their operations to Europe, and European clients concerned with US regulations. Both sides of the Atlantic are currently undergoing major changes in the way asset management businesses are conducted, from a structural, operational and regulatory point of view. As a global firm, we are well placed to advise on any asset management business’ cross-border activities. In addition, our operational due diligence service for institutional investors is something that has taken us across to the US for a number of years and so it is only natural to have a permanent base there.
The firm foresees its expansion to continue drastically in the next year, with plans for an Asian office already underway.
