Cayman firm makes first UK foray

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

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

Lowe said of his move: “It was a great opportunity to develop an office in London and provide a service to clients of the firm.”

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

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

“We’re now able to service European clients from the same time zone as they are in,” he said.

Lowe added that the firm plans to expand the London office in the next 12 months.
