Expanding a regional champion into a global player by creating a strong foothold in Asia and by moving its client base from 3 - 4 tier banks to 1 - 2 tier banks. As a result of the growth strategy the company tripled in size in the investment holding period and the strong performance during the recession, the high-quality pipeline, broad and international customer base and continued strong outlook for FinArch’s end-markets attracted inbound strategic interest. The company was successfully sold to Wolter Kluwer.
