The financial services sector is central to the UK’s economy but an increase in regulation is causing some smaller companies and owner-managed businesses to seek an exit to avoid the additional cost and time associated with a growing compliance burden.

Opportunities exist for specialist organisations to provide outsourced services within financial services and we believe this sector represents a significant opportunity for M&A activity.
Gambit’s specialist team has deep sector experience, particularly in respect of insurance broking, financial advisors and support services.
