SANNE acquires market leading agency services specialist AgenSynd
Dean Godwin, Chief Executive Officer
We are very pleased to announce that SANNE has completed a deal to acquire AgenSynd, a leading loan agency business. The company is headquartered in Madrid, with offices in London and Paris.
Founded in 2012, AgenSynd currently employs around 20 people. The business provides agency services to more than 150 transactions. Like SANNE, AgenSynd has an institutional client base, and is well known in the European Agency market for providing high levels of client service.
This deal is a fantastic opportunity for SANNE as we continue to build on our existing European footprint by adding new strategic locations in Madrid and Paris. With this acquisition, we are also adding to our existing agency expertise which will reposition us strongly in Europe as one of the leading independent providers of this specialist service.
Dean Godwin, Chief Executive Officer of Sanne Group plc, commented: “The addition of AgenSynd into our existing European loan agency business will provide further specialist expertise to our existing and new clients and positions us strongly in this market sector. The deal also expands SANNE’s European footprint with the addition of Madrid and Paris, increasing our global footprint to 17 office locations. AgenSynd is led by a highly experienced and respected team that has established a platform with a focus on providing its clients with the highest quality services. This closely aligns with our own philosophy. Adding more strength-in-depth to our existing European business continues to be important for us as we continue to work with, and service, international alternative asset managers launching funds in Europe.”
Fernando García, Founding Managing Director at AgenSynd commented: “We are very excited to be joining SANNE. Being part of a global business will enable us to access an extensive range of complementary services from across the Group. These will naturally add value to our clients going forward and will help us to continue to meet the ever increasing global service requirements from them.”
Manuel Rodríguez, Founding Managing Director at AgenSynd added: “SANNE is a perfect fit to our business. This powerful combination enables us to take the next step in our evolution and to provide new opportunities to our clients and staff in Madrid, Paris, London and globally.
