Zanders, the leading global treasury and risk consulting firm, has entered into an agreement with international investment firm MML Capital. To support Zanders’ accelerated growth strategy, MML will invest in Zanders as a minority shareholder. Under the terms of the transaction, the existing Zanders’ management team will remain majority shareholders.
From its foundation in the Netherlands in 1994, Zanders has grown strongly to become the leading independent treasury and risk consulting firm globally with over 200 employees across seven offices in Europe, the US and Asia. Zanders combines thought leadership with a high-quality approach and client involvement ‘from ideas to implementation’.
Luke Jones, Partner at MML, explains “We are thrilled to be partnering with the existing Zanders’ management team to support the firm’s next phase of growth. Zanders has a highly specialized proposition and its expertise in treasury and risk is unparalleled. The team has sustained strong growth over a number of years, and we are backing them to do more of the same.”
With a specialized focus on treasury and risk, Zanders has been 100% committed to providing best-in-class advisory services to 750 customers, such as large multinational corporates, financial institutions, public sector and non-profit organizations, in more than 40 countries. In addition, the company has developed its own suite of innovative cloud-based solutions on the Zanders Inside platform, which it will continue to scale with MML’s investment.
“We are very excited that MML is going to support us”, comments Laurens Tijdhof, CEO and Managing Partner at Zanders. “We have been searching for a genuine strategic partner to help accelerate our international expansion and execute on our growth strategy. MML’s strong track record of scaling people businesses, across multiple geographies, was immediately attractive to us. The experienced investment team felt like the perfect cultural fit for our business, and we look forward to working alongside them to deliver our strategic objectives.”
The transaction is subject to regulatory approval.
