Connection Capital backs JCRA Group MBO
JCRA Group, a provider of hedging, financial risk and debt consultancy services, has completed a £13.6m MBO with backing from clients of Connection Capital. The company has secured £6.7m of investment which it plans to put towards maximising synergies, technological improvements and continued expansion in its existing areas of operation. Globally, JCRA is the second largest advisory firm in ‘Over the Counter’ (OTC) derivatives. The company sees potential for growth following several misselling scandals and a subsequent increase in regulation that has seen banks mostly retreat from the market.
