Zedra announces Swiss acquisition

Posted: 07/10/2019

Trust, corporate and fund services specialist Zedra is to acquire Talenture, an independent corporate and services provider based in Lugano in southern Switzerland’s Italian-speaking Ticino region. 

The acquisition, which is expected to close by the end of the year, will bring Zedra’s global office network to 17 across 13 jurisdictions and will create Zedra’s fourth office in Switzerland.
 
Talenture specialises in accounting, corporate secretarial, tax compliance, payroll and HR services for Swiss and international companies. It has provided consulting and corporate services solutions for entrepreneurs and corporations since 1989.

Following the acquisition, Talenture Director Michele Antonini will assume the role of Managing Director of Zedra Lugano, while Talenture's management team, including Michele Antonini, Giuseppe Costantino, Uberto Meraviglia Mantegazza and Michele Meretti, will join Zedra.
  
Giovanni La Forgia, Zedra Switzerland Commercial Director, said: “Ticino’s strategic geographic position represents a bridge between northern and southern Europe and two strong and dynamic economic areas – Lombardy,  with its international fashion and financial hub Milan, and Switzerland."  

Ivo Hemelraad, Group Director Corporate, Funds & Legal, added: “We believe our office in Ticino will allow us to target new markets in Switzerland. Our business is well positioned to capitalise on opportunities in the Swiss fashion valley and this acquisition will enhance the range of corporate services we offer clients.”
