Management buy-in secures bright future at SL

SL Investment Management (SL) is pleased to announce the recent completion of an important corporate restructure, with the Executive Directors taking a significant stake in the company.

This is another important milestone for the company and follows on from a number of strategic changes in recent times, including the relocation to One City Place earlier in the year. Under the restructure arrangement, the existing shareholders will continue to hold a significant interest in the company, whilst applying their extensive experience to the strategic direction and growth of the business through continued representation on the Board.

The four SL Executive Directors buying into SL each have between 15-20 years' experience working within SL, and their commitment demonstrates their belief in the longevity and future prospects of the business.

Paul Sands, Chairman of SL said, "We are delighted to have completed this restructure with the SL management. It was important to the existing shareholders that we achieved a 'best of both worlds' solution. We have absolute belief in the future success of the business - so wanted to retain a significant financial interest in SL - whilst ensuring that we could retain the young and talented management team at SL."

Rob Ireland, Managing Director at SL commented, "The management are thrilled to have had the opportunity to take a more direct interest in the future growth of the business. We have a tremendously determined and talented team here at SL, all of whom are dedicated to providing our clients with the exceptional levels of service and professionalism they have come to expect of us."

"SL has exciting times ahead of us. Our flagship Life Settlement product, BlackOak investors LP, continues to achieve stellar performance, and we have a string of new products set for launch in 2018 that will continue to diversify the product range accessible by our investors, and cement our position as a leading Alternative Investment Fund Manager in the UK".
