PraxisIFM acquires Kompas International

RELATED TOPICS​

PraxisIFM is extending its global reach with the acquisition of Kompas International in the Netherlands – the first acquisition the Group has made since it listed on The International Stock Exchange.

Kompas, which provides trust and corporate services, employs 10 people and will be known as PraxisIFM Netherlands BV following the deal.
 
‘Kompas stands out in its field for their high quality of services and exceptional management team. They have great experience in an area that offers high growth potential for us,’ says Simon Thornton (pictured), CEO of PraxisIFM.
 
Thornton adds that the deal, which follows four other acquisitions between April 2016 and April 2017, extends PraxisIFM’s global footprint.
 
‘Kompas is headquartered in The Netherlands, a strategically advantageous jurisdiction in Europe. All staff will be retained and there’ll be no office changes.’
 
Kompas International is a service provider with a long-standing client base, led by managers with decades of experience in the industry. As part of PraxisIFM, they will be able to deepen the expertise and services offered to clients and expand their international reach.
 
‘As part of PraxisIFM, we will have the space and support to take our ambitions further. During our conversations I have felt the support of PraxisIFM’s management, a very involved group of people, which makes me feel confident that we have found the platform from which our services can grow,’ says Guido Wagenaar, commercial director of Kompas International.
 
The parties have agreed not to disclose the financial terms of the transaction, which is subject to regulatory approvals and other customary closing conditions.
 
With more than 300 staff across multiple jurisdictions, PraxisIFM is one of the largest independent and owner-managed financial services groups headquartered in the Channel Islands.
