Hamilton Locke Appoints Funds and Financial Services Partner, Erik Setio

Hamilton Locke is delighted to announce the appointment of Partner Erik Setio, bolstering the firm’s funds and financial services practice in Sydney. This move supports our growth trajectory following the recent launch of our Perth office and brings our partnership total to 38. 

Erik joins from Clayton Utz and offers clients over fifteen years of specialist experience in investment funds and financial services regulation. Erik’s extensive expertise covers financial services law, funds management (including all forms of collective investment vehicles), capital raisings and structuring and provision of financial products and services to wholesale and retail clients. Underpinning this is his deep knowledge of financial services regulatory matters including financial services licensing, marketing, disclosure, distribution and issuance of financial products.

Praised by clients for having “very good commercial and legal knowledge” as well as being “timely, cost effective and efficient”, Erik brings a depth of experience to our funds and financial services practice.

He has advised major financial services providers on the structuring, establishment and promotion of listed and unlisted funds, and capital raisings and fund restructures.

Erik has also advised Australian and foreign institutional investors on their participation in a wide range of collective investment schemes and investment arrangements as well as custody, investment management and similar arrangements.

Nick Humphrey, Managing Partner of Hamilton Locke, said, “We are delighted to welcome a great operator and have Erik join the firm, building out our funds and financial services capability in our Sydney office. This is an exciting move for the firm as we continue to expand service offering across our offices”.

This appointment comes as Hamilton Locke recently announced the exciting launch of its Perth office. Hamilton Locke’s holding company, Halo Group Holdings, has also recently announced its acquisition of specialist financial services compliance provider, Compliance for Business.
