Specialist regulatory hosting and outsourced compliance business, Lawson Conner rebrands as IQ-EQ

Global investor services group IQ-EQ, today announced that its specialist regulatory hosting and outsourced compliance business, Lawson Conner, has rebranded as IQ-EQ.

IQ-EQ completed the acquisition of Lawson Conner in 2018, adding appointed representative and AIFM solutions to its comprehensive range of existing compliance, administration, asset and advisory services for investment funds. Integrated and working seamlessly as part of the Group, the time has come for Lawson Conner to embrace the IQ-EQ brand and operate as an integral part of the Group’s overall service offering.

Speaking about the rebrand, Rachel Aldridge, Managing Director, Regulatory and Compliance Solutions at IQ-EQ, said, “As we evolve our business to better reflect our clients’ needs, our brand identity must mirror the shift. Throughout our 11-year history, we have stayed ahead of industry trends and market changes to support the strategic needs of our clients. 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.”

John Legrand, Managing Director, UK and Ireland, added, “In today’s complex world we know that our clients are looking for a one-stop shop when it comes to investor services so making the decision to rebrand as IQ-EQ wasn’t a difficult one. 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.”

Lawson Conner’s regulated services, delivered by its two FCA-regulated entities, G10 Capital Limited and Sapia Partners LLP will continue to operate under their existing entity names following today’s announcement.
