Brexit: Hamilton Lane to remain in UK

The private funds manager is 'not waiting to see where the wind blows', according to CCO Frederick Shaw.

Hamilton Lane, a listed alternative investment management firm, has said it will maintain a presence in London after the UK has left the European Union.

“We’ve seen news of managers making moves out of the UK. At Hamilton Lane, we’re not waiting to see where the wind blows,” Frederick Shaw, chief compliance officer at Hamilton Lane, told sister publication pfm.

“We’re reviewing which locations would make sense to operate from, though I don’t anticipate we’ll move wholesale from London.”

The firm has not confirmed which European locations they are considering.

Managers and service providers have been weighing their options since the referendum. BC Partners, a global private equity fund, and EQT, a Swedish manager, have both set up operations in Luxembourg citing the Brexit vote.
