Accura advised Polaris in connection with the acquisition of the four companies and the establishment of North. DLA Piper assisted the owners of Jysk Pension Rådgivning A/S. Moalem Weitemeyer assisted the sellers of FinPro.
The private equity fund Polaris established a new, large financial advisory consultancy in Denmark. This is based on the acquisition of the four consulting companies Contea, Jysk Pension, FinPro and Status under the joint brand North.
North will be the first consultancy offering independent advisory services within insurance, pension, financial procurement and mortgage financing based on the four companies’ existing expert competencies in these areas and supplemented with the onboarding of several other competencies. North is founded with Lars Gundorph as Group CEO and Per Klitgård as Chairman of the Board of Directors.
North serves privately owned and public companies, and the consultancy offers particularly strong positions within advisory services to housing- and property companies, utility- and energy companies, commercial and industrial companies as well as the public sector.
