On 14 December 2021, Canaccord Genuity Group Inc. (“Canaccord”) announced that through its wealth management business in the UK and Crown Dependencies (Canaccord Genuity Wealth Management UK, “CGWM UK”) it had agreed to acquire Punter Southall Wealth Limited (“PSW”) for total consideration of (i) £164m of cash, plus (ii) an equity interest in CGWM UK (amount undisclosed), and (iii) approximately £6m of retention and incentive awards comprising cash and equity in CGWM UK for certain key employees of PSW.

The acquisition brings to CGWM UK a leading vertically integrated wealth manager in PSW, with a broad range of advice and wealth management solutions to high net-worth individuals, including bespoke portfolios, managed portfolio services and a multi-asset fund range, complemented by a strong intermediary distribution channel. On completion, PSW’s core client proposition will remain largely unchanged, and the existing direct relationships between portfolio managers, financial planners and their clients will not be affected. With a strong track record of successfully integrating businesses and clients, CGWM UK expects to achieve tangible revenue and cost synergies with a clear pathway to continued growth.
