Paul Miller, MD of principal investing, to leave Legal & General Capital
Legal & General (“L&G”) announces that Paul Miller, Managing Director of Principal Investing at Legal & General Capital (“LGC”), has decided to leave the company to pursue new opportunities. Paul will leave L&G at the end of October 2019.
Paul joined the L&G Group Executive Committee as Group Strategy and Mergers & Acquisitions Director in June of 2017 from Goldman Sachs International. During this period L&G disposed of its Mature Savings and General Insurance businesses, bought out the minority shareholders of CALA Homes in order to secure full ownership of the company and acquired the European business of ETF Securities. Latterly, he has been a Managing Director within LGC, focusing on Venture Capital, SME Finance and LGC’s Build to Rent activities. His responsibilities will be taken by his colleagues in the business.
Paul has achieved a lot in his time with us, both on the M&A front and in working closely with me and the Board on strategy. Latterly at LGC he has expanded L&G’s footprint materially in Venture Capital, where we now have invested with 11 venture capital and biotech managers in over 300 start-up companies, whilst working with LGIM to secure L&G's largest build to rent development in Wandsworth. We wish him all the best in his new endeavours.
