Chatham Financial announced today that it has acquired the JCRA Group, significantly expanding the firm’s presence in Europe in financial risk management solutions.
Chatham and JCRA specialise in providing debt and derivatives solutions to commercial real estate, private equity, infrastructure, financial institutions, and corporate clients. Chatham and JCRA collectively serve over 3,000 clients and advise on more than 20,000 transactions with a notional amount in excess $700bn each year. The merged firm will lead the industry in capital markets expertise, transaction volume, and technology—providing clients access to the data, tools, and advice they need to manage financial risk.
Brian Conly, Managing Partner, Global Head of Private Equity & Infrastructure, and Co-Head of Europe said: “Clients of both firms will benefit from our enhanced ability to manage their exposure to capital market risks and innovate alongside them. Chatham’s expanded European team will continue to deliver best-in-class trade execution while helping clients navigate rapidly evolving markets, from LIBOR replacement to Brexit.”
