Key Capital advised Centaur on its transaction with FTV Capital

Key Capital advised Centaur, a leading provider of fund administration and regulatory services to the alternative asset management industry, on its significant growth capital transaction with FTV Capital.

Centaur was established in Dublin in 2009 by founding partners Ronan Daly, Karen Malone, and Eric Bertrand. The business has since expanded to 9 offices across Europe and North America, and has grown to $35bn AUA and 140 employees globally.

The transaction will see FTV make a significant investment in Centaur, facilitating the business to continue and accelerate on its impressive track-record of growth and expansion across geographies and product offerings.

FTV Capital is a leading growth capital investor focussing on financial services, enterprise technology and payments vertical. FTV has raised $2.8 billion to date, has invested in 110 companies and has offices in New York and San Francisco

Key Capital acted as sole financial advisor to the shareholders of Centaur.

Centaur is a high growth Irish headquartered fund services firm with offices across Europe and in North America. We appointed Key Capital to act as our advisors when we sought to take in a strategic investor to assist management with the growth of the business. The team at Key Capital listened carefully to our objectives and helped us to determine an optimal investor structure. They then worked diligently with our management team through every step of the process – selecting potential investors in Europe and the US, assisting with management presentations, negotiating deal terms and assisting on legal documents. The team were responsive and hard working and focused on delivering an excellent outcome for their client. Their depth of knowledge and expertise, coupled with their local presence, was invaluable. We were delighted with the service delivered by the team at Key Capital and felt they delivered a hugely valuable service.
