Commenting on the contribution of Goldenhill, JP Cunningham, Partner & Co-Founder of CYMBA said, “We were pleased to work closely with Goldenhill during the last two years to position the company for sale, culminating in the sale process itself. We chose to work with Goldenhill because of their focus in the Fintech sector, their relevant business and transaction experience, and strong relationships with the key buyers in Fintech space which ultimately resulted in the successful transaction with FactSet, who we believe will provide an excellent platform for the next round of growth of the business and staff.”
