Nordic Capital has signed an agreement to sell MFEX, a global independent fund distributor, to Euroclear. During Nordic Capital’s ownership, MFEX has successfully repositioned itself from a Nordic player to a pan-European leader with an emerging global presence.

The two companies are complementary and will build on each other’s strengths. The combination of MFEX’s innovative distribution platform with Euroclear’s FundSettle post-trade operations expertise will create a unique and compelling offering for fund distributors and fund management companies globally.

“MFEX is a true leader in its field. Since Nordic Capital became a majority owner in 2018, in partnership with the founders, MFEX has experienced continued strong organic growth and executed a series of strategic, value accretive acquisitions,” says David Samuelson, board member of MFEX and Principal, Nordic Capital Advisors.

Lieve Mostrey, Chief Executive Officer of Euroclear, commented: “We are delighted to sign this agreement to acquire MFEX Group. ”

“Together with Nordic Capital, we have invested in our platform and continued to transform the fund distribution proposition. By adding our respective strengths, we will be able to build an even better and stronger solution for fund distribution,” says Jean Devambez, CEO, MFEX.
