Macfarlanes advises Redburn on significant minority investment by Rothschild & Co

19 July 2019

Macfarlanes has advised London-based equity research house Redburn on the purchase of a significant minority stake by Rothschild & Co.

This investment will allow Redburn, the leading independent producer of equity research, to continue expanding its coverage to new companies and geographical regions - at a time when the research market is undergoing significant change following the introduction of MiFID II.

The Macfarlanes team was led by corporate and M&A partner Richard Burrows with assistance from corporate and M&A solicitor Gruffudd Jones. Financial services regulation advice was provided by senior consultant Tim Plews.

Richard Burrows comments: "We were very pleased to help Redburn on this transaction. The strategic partnership will create strong ties between two leading independent financial services firms - and will bring benefits to the clients of both groups."
