LPA Group expands the UK asset management business with new hire
By Joy Dumasia
LPA Group, the capital market technology and advisory firm, announced the hire of Alexander Ehmann, who is responsible for LPA’s asset management business across the UK, Ireland and the Nordics. In his role, Alexander oversees sales and business development, especially for the newly rebranded Capmatix Regulations, previously known as acarda, LPA’s platform for cross-border fund regulatory reporting solutions.
Alexander joins LPA from UK fund data provider FE fundinfo, where he was responsible for sales and business development for the entire product range in Germany, Austria and Luxembourg. Focusing on complex fund data and document automation solutions, he was one of the key drivers behind fund data dissemination.
Having started his career as a Fund Analyst at Morningstar, Alexander was one of the first analysts responsible for the Morningstar Qualitative Fund Rating. Shortly after, he joined the sales team as a Sales Director for Austria and Germany.
Commenting on his appointment, Alexander Ehmann said: “I am very excited to join LPA and help increase its footprint among asset management companies in the UK, Ireland and the Nordics. Asset management is ripe for innovation many firms have been slow to adapt advance data, analytics and automation technologies, but in the aftermath of the Covid-19 pandemic and facing an increasingly complex regulatory landscape, asset managers have started embracing innovation at an accelerated pace. LPA is the leader in report automation for fund-based financial products in Europe, and it’s my ambition to ensure that our solutions are found in more British, Irish and Nordic firms.”
Peter Schurau, CEO of LPA, commented: “LPA has seen a year of immense growth and opportunity in 2021, and the addition of Alexander to our team will strengthen our proposition in the UK, Ireland and Nordics. His experience in regulatory fund reporting and in-depth knowledge of the fund distribution value chain are a real asset to us and will help us better serve the asset management sector.”
IBS Intelligence reported that LPA, the capital markets technology and advisory firm, announced that it had enhanced its ESG consulting services through a partnership with Evercity, a digital platform for impact measurement and investment launched at the UN Global Climate Innovation Lab during COP26 in Glasgow.
