Apex Successfully Closes Ipes Acquisition

February 6, 2019

Apex Group Ltd. has completed the successful closing of the acquisition of private equity administrator Ipes, adding $165 billion in assets under administration to the Group’s portfolio.

“The addition of the Ipes business further strengthens Apex’s breadth of service and expertise in the private equity space while also solidifying its position as one of the largest private equity fund administrators in the world,” the company said.

“The close of the Ipes acquisition follows a succession of announcements from Apex, including last week’s confirmation of the close of M.M.Warburg & CO Asset Management and servicing business in Luxembourg [“Warburg”] and the recent announcement of Apex’s custody offering via its partnership with Citi.

“At the close of the Warburg deal, M.M.Warburg & CO Luxembourg S.A. was rebranded to ‘European Depositary Bank’ under the Apex Group. This entity delivers a unique service for Apex as the incorporation of banking and depositary services, plus the integrated custody services solution delivered through Apex’s partnership with Citi, further enhances the Group’s global infrastructure and ability to service clients across all aspects of their operations.”

Peter Hughes, Founder & Chief Executive Officer, Apex Group Ltd., said: “The closing of the Ipes deal is another important milestone for the business. The Ipes team is extremely well qualified and fits seamlessly into our own, bolstering both our private equity expertise and presence in Europe. The combination of Apex’s existing fund administration, banking and depositary, integrated custody solution and comprehensive corporate services offering means we now have the ability to deliver a full outsource solution for clients on a global basis”.
