Lawson Conner, the specialist regulatory hosting and outsourced compliance business of IQ-EQ, has rebranded as IQ-EQ.
The business, which has been acquired by IQ-EQ in 2018, will now operate as an integral part of the group’s overall service offering.
IQ-EQ said that the rebranding will not affect Lawson Conner’s regulated services, delivered by its two FCA-regulated entities, G10 Capital and Sapia Partners. They will continue to operate under their existing entity names.
The business, which added representative and AIFM solutions to IQ-EQ’s suite of compliance, administration, asset and advisory services for investment funds, has been integrated with the group since its acquisition.
Speaking about the rebrand, IQ-EQ Regulatory and Compliance Solutions managing director Rachel Aldridge said: “As we evolve our business to better reflect our clients’ needs, our brand identity must mirror the shift.
“For us rebranding as IQ-EQ is the next logical step on our journey and represents our continued commitment to helping our clients manage regulatory risk.”
UK and Ireland managing director John Legrand added: “Operating under a single and unifying brand name will allow us harness the strength and depth of the group to provide our growing global client base with a holistic suite of services that saves cost and reduces time to market.
“We’re confident that operating as IQ-EQ will bring positive benefits to our employees and clients alike and are hugely excited about what the future as IQ-EQ has in store.”
In July this year, IQ-EQ acquired Davy Global Fund Management, a domestic financial services business in Ireland.
