Wednesday 12 February 2020

Ocorian and Estera have merged to create what's described as a "global leader in corporate and fiduciary services, fund administration and capital markets," which will operate under the Ocorian name, with new branding.

Ocorian is now the seventh largest corporate, funds and trust group in the world by revenue, and manages over 17,000 structures on behalf of over 8,000 clients.

With assets under administration of $260bn, the newly formed Ocorian business says it will offer corporate, funds and fiduciary services across a network of 20 offices.

“The combination of Estera and Ocorian is extremely powerful," Farah Ballands (pictured top), Ocorian Group Chief Executive Officer, commented.

"No matter where in the world our clients’ financial interests are structured, we will provide flexible, bespoke solutions that meet their needs as well as the needs of their stakeholders and regulators. Our clients really are at the heart of everything we do."

Carey Olsen advised private equity investor, Bridgepoint, on the sale of Estera, working alongside Lead Counsel Travers Smith.
