Langham Hall opens office in New York

Private equity accountant Matt Lowe will head the fund administrator’s US operations.

Langham Hall has expanded into the US and opened its first office in New York, PERE's sister publication, Private Funds Management, reported Thursday.

The office will provide fund accounting, investor reporting and general administration services to debt, infrastructure, private equity and real estate funds, according to a statement from Langham Hall.

The fund administrator has appointed Matt Lowe as head of US. He previously worked as a director in the private equity team at fund administrator HedgeServ, where he was responsible for the administration of the firm's private equity and real estate fund clients, according to his LinkedIn profile. Lowe is a certified public accountant and has also worked in the alternative assets departments at Goldman Sachs and JP Morgan.

“America is a key jurisdiction for us as a global business. It enables us to provide fund or company administration and accounting to domestic US fund managers, and gives US managers access to services in Europe for AIFMD and investment transactions via London and Luxembourg,” Rob Short, Langham Hall's managing partner said in the statement.

Langham Hall has six other offices located in London, Jersey, Guernsey, Luxembourg, Hong Kong and Singapore.
