The group has also made three appointments to its Irish management company board in Lee Toms, global head of investment operations, Volker Kurr, European distribution chief, and John Craven, its finance head.

The company received authorisation from the Central Bank last year, which allows it to manage UCIT funds and AIF funds across Europe.

Legal & General Ireland CEO Eve Finn said the company had worked on securing the best talent possible following its clearance from the financial regulator.

"The recent hires we have made are predominantly from the Irish market," she said.

"We now have a strong and diverse team in place, covering a wide variety of areas, including investments, risk, compliance, legal, finance, product, operations and client servicing."

The company will look to make diversified investment portfolios in schemes such as REITs more accessible to overseas investors.
