Link Group has completed the acquisition of London-based Capita Asset Services (CAS) and launched its new Link Asset Services division.

The acquisition expands the Sydney-based solution provider’s European operating platform, as well as its regional capabilities.

It means Link Group now operates in 17 jurisdictions worldwide, and has more than £600 billion in assets under administration.

John McMurtrie, managing director at Link Group, said: “In CAS, we have acquired a business with leading market positions across its fund, corporate and private client, shareholder and banking and debt service lines.”

He added: “With this acquisition, Link Group is now a truly international company with expanded opportunities for further growth. We are genuinely excited by the opportunities for the expanded Link Group, our new clients and new colleagues.”

Anthony O’Keeffe, CEO of Link Asset Services, commented: “This [acquisition], coupled with new complementary and supplementary capabilities and a broader international reach, puts us in an excellent position to continue to develop our strong partnerships with our clients.”
