2022: So far In Venture Capital

Global investment in 2022 has been majorly dominated by North America, Europe, and Asia Pacific, whereas the Middle East, and South and Central America have recorded low investments comparatively. In light of this, Europe and North America have been identified as the major destinations for Private Equity and Venture Capital (PE/VC) investments.   GlobalData’s whitepaper analyzes which sectors PE/VC firms have been investing in, looking at Technology, Media, and Telecom, with these sectors recording $356 billion and a deal volume of over 10,000 deals in 2022. Healthcare, Financial Services, Business & Consumer Services, and Construction sectors have also seen high investment activity by PE/VC firms, recording a deal value of over $70 billion each.   But what can this mean for you?   Understand how the Deals Database on GlobalData Explorer can be leveraged to:

The deal, whose financial terms were not disclosed, will enable Progeny to scale up its total assets under management to more than £5.5bn.

Established in 1898 by Thomas Fry, The Fry Group is said to be one of the oldest wealth management firms globally.  It has four offices in the UK and four international offices in UAE, Singapore, Hong Kong and Belgium.

The acquisition will bring a team of 91 employees to Progeny, including tax, estate and financial planning experts.

The Fry Group CEO David Pugh said: “The Fry Group and Progeny are a great fit and we’re excited about this next stage in our journey.

“The wellbeing of our team is a priority and in this area we have more common ground with Progeny, who share our passion for attracting, inspiring and developing exceptional people.

“I’m looking forward to the new possibilities, the additional services we can offer our clients and the scope for scaling up that joining Progeny will bring.”

Progeny CEO Neil Moles added: “We’re proud to announce the international expansion of the Progeny brand and what better way to do it than with a business as prestigious and long-established as The Fry Group.

This is a thrilling new front for us, which will bring fresh new opportunities for our clients, our team members and for Progeny as a growing and ambitious firm.

“We are always focused on new horizons and on pushing ourselves to meet fresh challenges. Our aim is not just to help our clients meet their existing goals but to create the aspirational and supportive environment for them to achieve new ones.

“I’m delighted to welcome The Fry Group to Progeny and look forward to delivering on our joint potential and to the progress we can make together.”

Progeny’s corporate legal department team provided legal advise to Progeny on the transaction.

In May, the firm acquired Hampshire-based Coll Perkins, expanding its presence in the south of England.
