Global investor services firm SGG announced it is expanding its Cayman office due to an increased client demand and a growing book of Cayman-domiciled funds and structures.

To spearhead this expansion, SGG has appointed Lynden John as the managing director of client relations and commercial strategy for the Cayman office.

He will be responsible for ensuring client service and is tasked with implementing SGG’s Cayman business-development strategy while assisting Selma Lee-Arch, managing director of business and operations, in building and developing its fund solutions business in the Cayman Islands.
