Dunedin backed Alpha Financial Markets Consulting (“Alpha”), a leading global asset and wealth management consulting firm, has been ranked at number 34 in The Sunday Times HSBC International Track 200. This ranks Britain’s mid-market private companies with the fastest-growing international sales, over the last two years.
New business wins in Europe and the US helped Alpha’s international sales grow to £14.9m in 2015, up from £4.7m in 2013.
In February 2016, Dunedin made a significant investment in Alpha, with the aim of supporting the business’ plan to increase its presence in current markets and expand into new geographies.
Mark Ligertwood, Partner at Dunedin, who sits on the board of Alpha, said: “When we invested in Alpha, we recognised a business that is strongly placed to attain its position as the leading global provider of consulting services to the asset management industry. This ranking is testament to the fact that Alpha is making very strong progress towards that goal.
“It is a huge achievement to be named among the UK’s fastest growing international businesses - many congratulations are due to the team.”
Euan Fraser, Alpha’s Global Chief Executive Officer, said:
“This is a fabulous achievement and could not have been accomplished without the hard work and dedication of the whole team. Our plans for 2016 and beyond are equally ambitious so we look forward to climbing higher in the league next year”.
