Wealth, asset management and complementary financial services group Team has acquired Jersey-based IFA Omega Financial Services Limited.

The transaction, which is subject to approval by the Jersey Financial Services Commission, will involve £2m payable in cash, and a further deferred consideration of up to £2m in a mixture of cash and new shares in Team.

“Omega has a first-class reputation amongst its clients, is a natural partner with TEAM Asset Management for investment management services, and is therefore an ideal entry point into the advice space in Jersey for Team plc,” Matthew Moore, COO and CFO of Team, commented.
“We believe it is a good transaction for Team plc shareholders, staff and clients. and we are very much looking forward to working side by side with the Omega team and seeing the future benefits of our joint efforts.”

Mr Allenby added: “We thoroughly enjoyed working with Paul and the team at Viberts. Their speed of response, attention to detail, knowledge and counsel throughout the process was second to none.”
