Posted on 25 Apr 2013

Laven Partners, a global consulting firm providing professional services to the alternative and traditional investment industry, has named Tom Morgan as Managing Director of the firm’s New York office.

Mr. Morgan is a leading financial services, compliance and operations consultant with over 28 years of legal, business and financial services experience. He began his career as a lawyer representing both public and private institutions, focused on corporate finance, regulatory, banking and real estate matters. He is a member of the Massachusetts Bar and a graduate of Harvard University with a BA in Economics. He obtained his Juris Doctorate from Boston College School of Law.

At Laven Partners, Mr. Morgan will focus on expanding the firm’s existing service offering in the United States.

Laven Partners also provides operational due diligence assessments of funds for institutional and family office investors.

Jérôme de Lavenère Lussan, CEO of Laven Partners, says: “We are very excited to be growing so quickly in the US and having such a reputable figure lead our team. Tom’s extensive regulatory and business experience in the US funds industry will allow us to accelerate the growth of our New York office, which we launched just over a year ago. With Tom we are adding depth to our enterprise risk management and compliance services which are in high demand at the moment. Managers and investors around the world are concerned about the impact of US regulations just as US managers are concerned with AIFMD. Tom has the right experience and expertise and we are very pleased that he has accepted this new role with us.

Mr. Morgan commented: “Laven Partners enjoys a global reputation as one of the top regulatory compliance and due diligence firms in the international funds industry. I have been consistently impressed by the firm’s wealth of expertise ranging from compliance to structuring to operational due diligence. It is this breadth of knowledge combined with Laven’s professional culture that truly sets them apart from the competition. I am very humbled to join such a well-regarded team and help expand our offering in the US.
