US £160 billion wealth giant launches into UK

US wealth giant Meketa Investment Group (MIG) has launched a UK proposition.

Boston-based MIG, which was founded in 1978, employs around 100 people and consults on more than $270 billion for over 90 clients.

The firm provides general investment consulting and advisory services on a discretionary and non-discretionary basis, with clients ranging from public, corporate, chartiable, insurance and family offices.

The new office, based in London, will be launched by MIG managing principal Stephen McCourt. It will open for business on 12 June and initially house three investment professionals.

'London provides a platform to deepen our existing research coverage outside the Americas,' McCourt said. 'Meketa Investment Group is well known for the depth and experience of its investment staff.  We are pleased to establish a presence in Europe.'

MIG founder and chief executive James Meketa, added: 'As a leading advisory firm with an ever more geographically diverse client base, establishing a presence in Europe is an appropriate and timely step in our evolution.'

'While continuing to grow our firm we remain committed to providing the highest level of client service. In serving the EMEA markets we will employ the same client-centred, research-focused approach that has served us so well since our founding.'
