Nick Lawson


Nick spent 17 years at Deutsche Bank in London as a Managing Director where he built the No.1 rated Special Situations and Merger Arbitrage desk. Latterly he was Global Head of Macro and Synthetic Equity.

In 2015 he joined Arrowgrass Capital Partners LLP as Partner, Head of Strategic Capital Solutions where he developed both close ties with many of the world’s leading asset allocators and a close understanding of their investment needs and targets.

Backed by four investors Nick decided to launch Ocean Wall to utilise his 25 years of experience in running complex equity businesses and advising on the more esoteric and niche aspects of asset raising.

Using this skillset Nick aims to turn Ocean Wall into a leading asset raising firm with a global reach allowing allocators the confidence that they will only be presented with investments that have been thoroughly vetted and approved following a comprehensive due diligence process and which align closely with each allocator’s individual risk appetite and investment strategy.
