SJ Berwin has lured an LG (Lawrence Graham) investment funds partner to join its expanding financial markets group.

Victoria Younghusband, will join the firm on 1 August to help develop SJ Berwin’s investment fund capabilities.

Financial markets partner at SJ Berwin, Bruce Gardner, commented: “The firm wants to develop the financial markets team and Victoria is definitely the right person to help us do that. Her experience on the fund side is excellent and this is certainly something we would like to move much more into.”

Younghusband’s arrival will bring the number of partners in the financial markets group in London to six with a further 13 partners in the firm’s European offices.

Younghusband said: “I am looking forward to joining a firm which is recognised as having one of the leading financial markets groups in the City and helping it to consolidate its reputation in this field.”

While at LG, Younghusband’s clients included the French hotel group, Accor and the European Utilities Trust.
