Powerscourt is delighted to announce that it has won Best M&A Communications in Support of a Transaction at the 2021 PRCA City and Financial Awards, for client Jupiter Asset Management’s acquisition of Merian Global Investors.
Powerscourt advised on this £370 million Class 1 transaction, working closely with Jupiter’s deal and communications teams to deliver a multi stakeholder strategy to support the deal process, which was one of the first major transactions to be completed during the pandemic. The Jupiter team successfully managed Covid-related disruption and severe market uncertainty, as well as the early days of remote working, to complete this high profile deal in the middle of the UK’s first national lockdown.
Justin Griffiths, Partner and head of Financials, said: “We are extremely proud to have played our small part in supporting this transformational acquisition. Thank you to the PRCA and the judges for recognising our hard work and that of Jupiter’s excellent in house communications team who are always a pleasure to work with.”
