Once the acquisition is closed, Asia Perspective partners Daniel Karlsson and Alexander Ocieczek along with the firm’s existing management will be incorporated into ARC Group at corporate level.
Both Karlsson and Ocieczek will become managing partners at ARC Group.
ARC Group managing partner Sergio Camarero said: “This is a key milestone in our growth strategy. Asia Perspective gives us the right capabilities to offer our existing clients and expand ourselves.
“We observed an incremental number of Nordic companies interested in public listings abroad and we believe the acquisition of Asia Perspective will give us the right access to those companies.
“Having a local office in Sweden will allow us to provide a better service to the clients and enhance their confidence and trust.”
