Michael Lawson

Head of Business Development

Joined Kestrel Partners in April 2022 as a Partner and Head of Business Development and Management. I am responsible for business growth and relationships with all our clients, raising capital for the core strategies and new bespoke mandates, servicing all investors and ensuring the best business and PRI practices. I was previously a Partner at Lansdowne Partners for 13 years, serving their global client base for all Equity strategies and as member of the Charities Committee, and prior to that at Citigroup as a VP in their Hedge Fund Solutions and Prime Brokerage Group.

I graduated from St Andrews University with a Masters in Medieval History and Theology, and have since served as an advisor to a number of UK charities and school academies.
