Cayman firm Turner sets up in London

Cayman Islands firm Turner & Roulstone has entered the UK market with the launch of a London office.

The office, on the City’s Cornhill, currently consists of just one partner, Gavin Lowe, who has joined the firm from Ogier.

The focus for Turner’s London office will be corporate markets, structured finance and investment funds.

Until now the firm has serviced European clients from its Cayman base, but Lowe said the firm felt it was important to have someone working in the local area.

He added that the firm plans to expand the London office within the next 12 months.
