Goldenhill International M&A Advisors today announced that it acted as exclusive M&A advisor to Amaces in its acquisition by London-based asset management consultancy, MJ Hudson.
Founded in 2002 by two senior treasury and custody principals, Amaces is based in the UK and US and is a subscription-led data and analytics service provider to more than 100 fund managers, pension funds and endowments located in the UK, US, Continental Europe and Canada. Its clients rely on Amaces products and services to help them achieve and sustain optimum performance from their custodian banks and administrators.
The acquisition expands MJ Hudson’s existing asset management client base from 600+ managers and asset owners to more than 700, collectively managing in excess of $10Trn. It provides MJ Hudson with an established operational and commercial presence in the US and Canadian markets, while simultaneously offering new and existing clients an extended and enhanced suite of services.
Commenting on the contribution of Goldenhill to the acquisition, Aidan Dennis and James Economides, co-founders said:
“We were delighted to work with Goldenhill during this process which has resulted with this successful sale to MJ Hudson. We chose to work with Goldenhill because of their focus in the global Fintech sector, their relevant business and transaction experience and strong relationships with the key buyers in Fintech space in both Europe and North America which ultimately resulted in this transaction with MJ Hudson. Amaces and MJ Hudson both operate within the asset management market and both have strong, compatible cultures. The logical next step was to combine forces for the benefit of all our clients.”
