LJ Partnership, a London-headquartered private wealth partnership, has launched a New York office as part of its international expansion plans and with that has made several hires.
The team members joined LJ Partnership from HighTower Advisors, prior to which they worked together at Guggenheim Investment Advisers. They specialise in investment advisery and management of alternative assets for high net worth families, family offices and foundations.
It is headed by Christopher Shin, former head of US portfolio management at Guggenheim Investment Advisers. He has also held senior roles at Goldman Sachs and Bear Stearns. Mr Shin joins as a partner.
Other team members include Jeffrey Fulk and Katharine Drake. They join as managing director and client service manager, respectively.
Mr Fulk was a managing director at HighTower Advisers and a member of the US portfolio management team at Guggenheim Investment Advisors. Ms Drake has previously worked as part of the private wealth groups at both Raymond James and Bank of America Merrill Lynch.
LJ Partnership supervises in excess of $14 billion of assets and advises individuals, family offices, foundations and charities worldwide. The new team and office in New York brings the private wealth partnership’s international presence to eight office locations across Europe, Asia and the Americas.
