deVere CEO takes over UAE’s Credence International

deVere chief Nigel Green has acquired Credence International, a wealth management business headquartered in the UAE, for an undisclosed sum.

The deal offers deVere the ownership of Credence’s Dubai offices, which employ 26 people.

The acquired entity will retain its independent brand identity. It will remain under the leadership of its former CEO Chris Ferguson.

The acquisition excludes Credence’s Australian unit.

Commenting on the purchase, Green said: “I’m thrilled to confirm the acquisition of Credence International, which is known for its robust core value of having a laser-like focus on delivering best outcomes for clients, thereby helping them to reach, and often exceed, their long-term financial goals.

“I am confident that my investment in Credence International will be of great benefit to the company’s clients.

“Together, with the talented, high-quality team at the company, I will be proactive in pursuing material benefits for clients.”

Green also expressed interest to make further acquisitions, as well as roll out subsidiary brands and new products.

de Vere was founded in 2002 by Nigel Green.
