Legal & General Investment Management (LGIM) has expanded its team servicing wealth management clients with the appointment of Matthew Kemp as Senior Investment Sales Manager for London. Matthew will support and build LGIM’s relationships with London-based wealth managers, stockbrokers and fund-of-fund clients.

Matthew will report to Stephen Gray, who joined LGIM in the newly created role of Head of Wealth Management in July 2016. The team of four covers wealth management clients in London and the Channel Islands.

With over seventeen years of experience in asset management, Matthew joins LGIM from Ashburton Investments where he was Head of UK Wholesale Distribution. He was previously a Partner at Smith & Williamson for six years, and prior to that, an Investment Director at Standard Life Investments where he was responsible for building relationships with banks and global distributors. While at Standard Life Investments, and in an earlier role at AXA Investment Managers, Matthew gained experience in the promotion of funds to key discretionary managers within London and the South East.

Stephen Gray, Head of Wealth Management at LGIM, commented: “We are excited to welcome Matthew to our growing team. Matthew’s extensive experience working with a variety of discretionary clients makes him a valuable addition, and his appointment reflects our ongoing commitment to build LGIM’s wholesale proposition.”
