Euroclear agrees to acquire MFEX Group

Brussels/Stockholm, July 7th 2021 - Euroclear has agreed to acquire MFEX Group, a leading global digital fund distribution platform, majority owned by Nordic Capital.

Euroclear agrees to acquire MFEX Group

The combination of MFEX’s innovative distribution platform with Euroclear’s FundSettle post-trade operations expertise creates a unique and compelling offering for fund distributors and fund management companies globally.

Faced with increasing levels of complexity and cost, fund management companies require an efficient mechanism to access a broad network of end investors in a fragmented marketplace. FundSettle already streamlines back office processes by delivering a single point of access for order management, settlement and asset servicing, bringing greater efficiencies and cost savings.

With this transaction, MFEX and Euroclear’s complementary businesses are expected to produce significant value through revenue synergies, expanding the client service offering by creating a new funds market utility and a leading global provider of fund services.

Established in 1999, the MFEX Group is headquartered in Stockholm with over 300 employees internationally. Experts in global fund distribution, MFEX offers a complete solution for fund companies and distributors and has assets under administration of EUR 320 billion. Over 350 institutional clients use MFEX to access one of the world's largest range of funds with 80,000 funds from over 960 fund companies.

The parties have agreed not to disclose financial details. The transaction is expected to close in the second half of 2021, subject to customary closing conditions and regulatory approvals.

Lieve Mostrey, Chief Executive Officer, Euroclear commented: “We are delighted to sign this agreement to acquire MFEX Group. We expect MFEX’s broad fund distribution network, along with its talented people, to be very complementary to Euroclear as we continue to enhance our exceptional service, extend our customer proposition and grow our business.”

Jean Devambez, Chief Executive Officer, MFEX Group said: “Over the past years, we have together with Nordic Capital invested in our platform and continued to transform the fund distribution proposition. Euroclear is a great strategic fit for the next stage of our journey. By adding our respective strengths, we will be able to build an even better and stronger solution for fund distribution.”

MFEX co-founders and Board members, Olivier Huby and Oliver Lagerström added: “It has been a privilege to work closely with Nordic Capital and to grow MFEX together. We are delighted for MFEX to partner with Euroclear, which we believe will be a perfect combination for the future.”

David Samuelson, Board member of MFEX and Principal, Nordic Capital Advisors also commented: “MFEX is a true leader in its field. Since Nordic Capital became a majority owner in 2018, in partnership with the founders, MFEX has experienced continued strong organic growth and executed a series of strategic, value accretive acquisitions. MFEX has developed from being a Nordic leader in its industry to a pan-European leader with an emerging global presence. Nordic Capital is pleased to have been able to support this journey. Now it is the ideal time for Nordic Capital to hand over to Euroclear as the next step for MFEX.”
