London Capital Group’s new ownership continues to beef up its board of directors

Recently rejuvenated London-based CFD and spread betting company London Capital Group Holdings plc (LON:LCG) continues to attract high quality senior executives to its board following a complete turnaround in fortunes following new President Charles-Henri Sabet’s £17 million financing and restructuring plan.

Today, two further non-executive directors have been appointed at LCG, one of whom is former Dresdner Kleinwort Managing Director Nicholas Lee, whose tenure at the conglomerate was extensive, spanning from 1988 to 2009 across the company and its antecedent firms from 1988 to 2009, starting at Kleinwort Benson Group plc and rising to Managing Director, Head of Banking and Hedge Fund Solutions.

Mr. Lee’s former clients included leading European financial services firms and large industrial, consumer leisure and technology companies. Mr Lee is currently executive chairman of AIM-listed Paternoster Resources plc and non-executive director of AIM-listed MX Oil plc. Nicholas was previously a director and head of corporate finance at Novus Capital Markets Limited and a director of AIM-listed Metal Tiger plc and Plutus Powergen plc.

Mr. Lee qualified as a chartered accountant with Coopers & Lybrand and has an MA in engineering from St John’s College, Cambridge, and will bring to the board valuable investment banking advisory experience and cross-sector corporate strategy expertise to the board.

The second appointment to be announced today is that of Rebecca Fuller, who assumes the post as non-executive director, bringing with her 20 years of experience as a practising lawyer in governance, regulation and risk management within leading international financial institutions and at some of the world’s largest law firms.

Ms Fuller has been since May 2013 an independent non-executive director at BATS Trading Limited, the largest pan-European equities regulated investment exchange, and is a director of Anico Financial Services Limited which she co-founded. From 2004 to 2012 Ms Fuller was general counsel and head of compliance at Citadel Investment Group in Europe and from 2010 to 2012, a director of Citadel Securities (Europe) Limited.

From 2000 to 2003 Ms Fuller was legal counsel for the Lehman Brothers’ equities division in Europe. She previously practised as a finance lawyer with Clifford Chance after serving as associate to the Honourable MEJ Black, Chief Justice of the Federal Court of Australia, and completing her training with Freehills. She is a barrister and solicitor of the Supreme Court of Victoria, Australia, and a solicitor of the Supreme Court of England and Wales, and has an M Juris in European and Comparative law from Balliol College, Oxford and an LLB and BA in French and Economics from the University of Queensland.

Ms Fuller will bring to the board valuable experience in international governance and risk management across the financial services industry.
