Boston Multi Family Office has completed its acquisition of IQE, an Isle of Man fiduciary, following approval by the Isle of Man Financial Services Authority.
The deal is the first acquisition since the management buyout at Boston in 2019.
All of IQE’s services and clients will transfer to Boston’s Isle of Man headquarters.
IQE Limited directors David Karran, Moira McHarrie and Anne Couper Woods have joined Katherine Ellis, Alex McNee and Sarah Ingrassia on the Boston board, with other IQE staff also transferring to Boston’s Hill Street offices.
Boston CEO Katherine Ellis said: “We are delighted to welcome our new colleagues and clients to the Boston family. Due to the Coronavirus pandemic, this acquisition was, by necessity, managed entirely remotely so it is very pleasing that we can now work together as one team.
“I would like to acknowledge the professionalism of staff at both companies in bringing these businesses together and look forward to an exciting future as we continue to develop with further select acquisitions that will see the Boston team continue to build their client focused approach in the market.
“I would also like to thank our investors at Rockpool Investments LLP for their continued support as well as those who helped us with the transaction including Kerry Smith from Kesmi Consulting for regulatory due diligence, Mazars for financial due diligence and Johnny Bethell from Taylor Wessing for legal input.”
Boston Multi Family Office was founded in 2002 as a single family office and was held privately until 2019. It works with high net worth and ultra-high net worth individuals and is headquartered in the Isle of Man, with offices in Malta and Dubai. It provides trust, corporate, and fiduciary services to corporates and family offices.
