Cordium announce deal for Hedgestart Partners

Corbett Keeling and its UK corporate finance partner Equiteq have announced that its client HedgeStart Partners LLP has been acquired by Cordium, a firm that boasts Buy & Build specialist Sovereign Capital as one of its investors.

Equiteq, which specialises in mergers and acquisitions (M&A) within the consulting sector, is a main provider of growth advisory and M&A transaction service to many big players within the the industry. 

Meanwhile, Corbett Keeling has built a reputation for itself as one of the UK's leading corporate finance firms, boasting around two decades of experience. Corbett is also a member of the worldwide network of M&A advisors, Globalscope. 

Their client HedgeStart, was founded back in 2000, and has established itself as a company offering a range of start-up and on-going outsourced services, many of which focus on alternative investment businesses. 

Such services include corporate tax, private client tax, FCA regulatory compliance, accountancy & payroll and strategic consulting.

Since being set up, the firm has grown continually over the course of the last 13 years and now operates out of a single office in London, with a workforce of around 36 people. 

According to the announcement, the deal to sell the company to Sovereign Capital was completed on January 31st of this year.

Neil Cox, director at Sovereign, commented about the transaction: “There is continuing strong customer demand for outsourced independent compliance consultancy as a result of increasing financial regulation and investor governance transparency requirements. This acquisition further enhances Cordium’s position as a high-quality global provider of regulatory compliance consulting and software services to regulated financial services companies.”

Since being established in 2001, Sovereign Capital has been investing in companies across the UK within the support services, education & training and healthcare services sectors. 

Its main focus has been ‘Buy & Build’ strategies – partnering investee companies to help them grow significantly, both organically and through acquisitions. It claims to have already completed over 24 Buy and Build transactions.
