The pressures facing the Asset Management sector in recent years have led to a rise in consolidation within the industry. This has encouraged many firms to look for inorganic options to enhance the scope and scale of their investment operations.

At Magellan, we have a track record of identifying and facilitating boutique M&A transactions, typically up to a threshold of US$10bn in assets under management.

Our depth of experience in the Asset Management industry has allowed us to forge lasting relationships with senior management teams in both large multi-strategy houses and boutique investment companies, offering us insight of those companies looking to expand operations or find suitable M&A partners.

This knowledge and access to key stakeholders has provided us with the ability to select appropriate merger or acquisition partners, and act as mediators throughout the due diligence and negotiation process.
