HWF Partners has sold a majority stake to The Ardonagh Group
HWF Partners, founded in 2014, is a specialist mergers and acquisitions (M&A) insurance broker with expertise in structuring bespoke insurance solutions for M&A transactions. Other services offered by HWF include tax liability, contingent risk, title insurance and environmental broking and advisory.
HWF works with many of the world’s leading legal and financial advisors to provide insurance broking and advisory services to private equity houses, infrastructure funds, real estate firms, lending banks and corporates. With offices in London, UK, and Frankfurt, Germany, the HWF team has advised on over 2,000 transactions with deal values ranging from £5 million to in excess of £8 billion.
Following the receipt of a number of unsolicited approaches, Lincoln was retained as the sole sell-side financial advisor to HWF’s partners. Lincoln advised the management team on the preparation of marketing materials, deal negotiation and due diligence stages of the transaction.
Edward Lethbridge, Managing Director at Lincoln International and head of the firm’s UK Business Services Group, commented, “Having tracked HWF’s rapid rise since 2014 and seen their commercial expertise on a number of Lincoln deals, it was exciting to help the founders find the right partner to facilitate their growth into a truly global business.”
We needed a partner with the skill set to deliver real expertise on key negotiation points and navigate to a fair result on the value items. Really thankful to have the Lincoln team delivering in that role.
