LGC appoints CFO from 3i Infrastructure

RELATED TOPICS​

Legal & General Capital (LGC), the principal investment arm of Legal & General Group, has appointed Stephen Halliwell as its new chief financial officer (CFO).

LGC is a key growth area for Legal & General, investing in socially and economically useful enterprises with a focus on housing, infrastructure and SME finance. 
 
LGC targets risk-adjusted returns on its investments whilst creating longer-term investment opportunities for other parts of Legal & General Group and institutional investors.
 
Halliwell was previously chief financial officer at 3i Infrastructure, the FTSE250 group focused on UK and European infrastructure investments. Having been at 3i since 1998, he played an integral part in the firm’s growth from the IPO of 3i Infrastructure plc in 2007. Managing the operational, financial and reporting requirements for 3i’s Infrastructure business, with GBP2.5 billion of assets under management, he acted as a key interface with the public markets.
 
Halliwell’s experience also includes acting as group finance director for 3i Group during 2009 and 2010. He previously held the position of head of financial planning and analysis for 3i Group prior to the listing of 3i Infrastructure plc.
 
Paul Stanworth, managing director of Legal & General Capital, says: “The seniority of Stephen’s appointment and his infrastructure experience appropriately sets the tone for our ambitions at Legal & General Capital. We are unashamed disrupters and target aspects of the UK which need a capital boost to provide a social and economic benefit to society as well as a return. Our current focus is in housing, infrastructure and SME finance. We have been building a best-in-class team with the depth of expertise to support our growth trajectory, and Stephen’s arrival is a major boost to our plans.”
 
Halliwell adds: “It is clear that Legal & General Capital has been taking a fresh and significant approach to investing in key areas of the UK’s social and economic infrastructure. I relish the chance to be involved in this unique business at such an opportune time.”
