Financial Services:  Supporting the acquisition of RiskQuest by Zanders

Armstrong is delighted to have provided commercial due diligence (CDD) in support of Zanders’ acquisition of RiskQuest.

Zanders is a global independent treasury and risk consulting firm with 30 years of experience in providing innovative solutions to multinational corporations, financial institutions, public sector entities, and NGOs (Non-Governmental Organisations). The company has grown strongly to become a leading global consulting firm with 450 employees across Europe, the Middle East, the US, and Asia.

Based in Amsterdam and founded in 2008, RiskQuest specialises in building state-of-the art models for managing financial risk, developing sustainable strategies, and preventing financial economic crime. The business has an impressive customer base and services all major Dutch financial institutions, including the Dutch Central Bank. 

This strategic acquisition is set to further strengthen Zanders’ presence in the European market and reflect a shared commitment to deliver excellence, paving the way for strengthened services and increased market influence.

Armstrong interviewed a range of RiskQuest’s clients to help develop key recommendations to maximise the business’s potential, and enhance the proposition of the combined group.

Sjoerd van Zoelen, Chief of Staff at Zanders said: “The Commercial DD work that Armstong has provided was very helpful. With their report it was easy to understand the relationship that RiskQuest has with their clients. Furthermore, the report clearly shows any business opportunities in different areas of expertise.”

Jack Hibbs, Engagement Manager at Armstrong said: “We really enjoyed working with the Zanders and RiskQuest teams and are thrilled to have helped with the transaction. We are looking forward to seeing the success of the group going forwards.”
