Jan 29 2010 | 9:43am ET

Structured products specialist Luxembourg Financial Group has hired a former Deutsche Bank executive to lead its hedge fund solutions group.

Gareth James oversaw hedge fund derivatives and the hedge fund managed account platform at Deutsche Bank, where he worked alongside LFG CEO Johan Groothaert.

“This is a very exciting time in the hedge funds business, with a lot of structural change taking place,” James said. “LFG has a fantastic tool box of solutions, and its deep expertise in tax and regulatory structuring alongside a full suite of repackaging and management platforms allows us to assist managers better serve their clients.”

James is also the founder of institutional advisory Ganymede Partners. In December, Ganymede and LFG joined forces to launch a new UCITS III platform for smaller hedge funds.
