New private equity investor to drive Hawksford growth strategy

1 March 2021

International corporate, private client and fund services provider Hawksford is embarking on its next phase of accelerated growth, having secured a new majority investor.

STAR Capital Partnership LLP (STAR), a leading European fund manager, will provide investment capital to drive accelerated growth of the Hawksford business. M&A will be an integral part of STAR and Hawksford’s growth strategy, particularly where geographical expansion enhances the Company’s high quality, client focused service offering.

STAR Capital is a private equity firm focused on developing strategic asset-based businesses in Western Europe.

The deal was negotiated by management with both STAR Capital and the incumbent investor Dunedin, which will retain a minority stake in the business. The deal completed on the 25 February after receiving regulatory approval in each of the relevant jurisdictions that Hawksford operates in. Hawksford will be supported by Crescent Capital Group LP via its European Special Lending strategy on financing.
