The Financial Services sector is seeing rapid consolidation fueled by regulatory change and new transformational technology.
New digitally based competitors are challenging established organisations and generating recurring revenues and sustainable profits is further complicated by the increasing cost of compliance.
There is currently active interest in the sector from trade and private equity and strong prices are being paid.
There are many private equity firms who are keen to acquire platform businesses in the sector and Spectrum is well connected with all these mid-market investors. Industries tend to enter consolidation and development stages in cycles, which rarely repeat in less than a decade and hence now is the right time for Financial Services organisations to consider the positioning and strategy of the business.
The Spectrum team has advised on a number of significant deals in the Financial Services sector. For a confidential discussion about how we may help you though a transaction please contact us.
“The acquisition of Contractor Financials Ltd, coupled with the investment from Livingbridge, will allow us to create a market leading proposition and build a best of breed business with a view to serving the financial interests of the contractor freelancing community. Working with Spectrum has been an absolute pleasure - a combination of fun and focus. What became clear to me was that they were the team to get the deal over the line.’’Satvinder Singh, Managing Director, Mortgages Made Easy Limited
