Gresham House appoints head of compliance

by Alice Murray 20 August 2019

Listed alternatives manager Gresham House has named Geoff Lambert as its head of compliance.

In his new London-based role, Lambert will report to Samee Khan, general counsel and company secretary.

Lambert joins from Nikko Asset Management where he led the compliance team, and worked on implementation of MAR regulation, as well as ongoing project work for MiFID II.

Lambert has also previously held compliance roles at Henderson Global Investors and Royal London Asset Management.

In a statement, Khan said: “Geoff is an excellent addition to the team, with an impressive track record in building and overseeing effective compliance frameworks. The regulatory landscape for asset managers is complex and Geoff has the credentials to ensure Gresham House has best in class practices in place.”

Private equity and the alternatives space more broadly is indeed facing more regulation. In the UK, the Senior Managers and Certification Regime will come into effect later on this year, marking wholesale change in the way in which the industry is regulated – moving to personal accountability.

The Drawdown recently spoke to Tracy Diamond, founder of Castalia Capital, who highlighted the various impacts of the new rules, and ways in which PE firms are preparing.
