Slaughter and May is advising Euroclear, which provides post-trade services such as settlement and custody of financial instruments to the financial industry, on the acquisition of Goji Holdings Limited.
Goji is a London-based provider of investor platform technology and services to private markets and serves nearly 30,000 investors from 80 different jurisdictions. The acquisition of Goji supports Euroclear’s ambition to expand its footprint into private markets and its global funds strategy to be a leading platform across all fund asset classes. The combination will allow Euroclear to provide end-to-end access to the market for all market participants across a spectrum of products including mutual and alternative funds, ETFs and private funds.
The acquisition was announced on 14 December 2022. The transaction is subject to conditions, including approval by the Financial Conduct Authority, and is expected to complete in 2023.
