Completion of fundraise and growth from acquisitions
“The Group continues to grow both organically and through acquisition with notable progress being made this year following the acquisitions of the Exempt Property Unit Trust (“EPUT”) administration business of BDO Northern Ireland, Montagu Limited, Pole Arnold Financial Management and Caledonia Asset Management which further build on the Mattioli Woods’ long track record of successful acquisitions.
“The integration of each of the recent bolt-on acquisitions remains key to the delivery of earnings enhancement and we are pleased that the integration of each business to the Group is progressing well.
“In May 2021 we announced and subsequently completed our largest equity fundraise to date of £112 million to fund the acquisitions of Maven Capital Partners (“Maven”), which completed post year-end in June 2021, Ludlow Wealth Management Group (“Ludlow”) which remains subject to FCA approval to complete, and a pipeline of smaller transactions. These acquisitions represent significant milestones in Mattioli Woods’ journey.
“The acquisitions of Maven and Ludlow, the largest in the Group’s history, in addition to the recently completed acquisitions represent meaningful progress towards our ambitious medium-term revenue, earnings and asset goals. These earnings enhancing transactions extend the Group’s existing investment proposition to clients and add to our distribution capacity and scale. We have a strong track record of combining businesses that share the same culture and ethos of putting clients first and the Group remains well-positioned to deliver sustainable shareholder returns.
“We are well-positioned to progress further towards our medium-term goals. The Group is proud to mark its 30th anniversary this year and we continue to develop a business that is sustainable and here for the long term. Creating and preserving wealth, our focus remains on ensuring our trusted advice gives clients the understanding to achieve their objectives.”
