M&A Deals

Delta Capita, the international business & technology consulting and managed services firm, has announced its acquisition of Pall Mall Risk Reduction a London-based consultancy specialising in non-financial and conduct risk management for Banks and Investment firms.

Pall Mall Risk Reduction was established by three former senior executives from Credit Suisse, founded by David Long who held various senior positions at Credit Suisse during his 30 years at the bank. 

Most recently, David Long was head of Strategic Initiatives at Credit Suisse, a role that included planning for its business model after the Brexit referendum. Previously, he was also the Group Chief Operating Officer for the EMEA region.

The other co-founders of Pall Mall Risk Reduction include: 
Nick Wilcock, who was latterly Deputy EMEA COO for Credit Suisse and formerly President of its Moscow bank during his 25 years at the bank, and
Charanpal Matharu, who spent 13 years at Credit Suisse and was instrumental in pioneering the Front Office Supervisory practices and the First Line of Defence Controls Officer function within Global Markets.

The acquisition follows an impressive growth story at Delta Capita, who recently ranked as Europe’s fastest growing FS consulting firm in the 2018 Financial Times 1000 index. 
The timing of the acquisition will be welcomed by the industry as it braces itself for major transformational change and regulation such as Brexit readiness and an increased focus on non-financial risk management, which will have a very significant impact on industry participants.

Commenting on the acquisition, David Long said “We are very excited to be joining Delta Capita, our clients will benefit from the significantly increased capability and as skilled practitioners we are very much aligned to the DNA of Delta Capita. Combining Pall Mall Risk Reduction’s advisory business with Delta Capita’s proven technology and managed service capabilities will allow us to bring to market new innovative products and services that will greatly reduce the cost of control and compliance for our clients.”

Joe Channer, Delta Capita, Founder & CEO, added " This is a strategically important acquisition for Delta Capita, as we look to complement our financial risk practice with a non-financial risk capability to establish a complete advisory and managed services offering in the risk domain. 

Channer added, “The breaking up of the banking value chain is establishing new eco-systems that are being occupied by FinTechs, service providers and industry collaboration initiatives, all powered by adoption of modern technology and infrastructure. We believe non-financial and conduct risk management will dramatically benefit from this market evolution.”
