Hawksford Group acquires corporate services business in Singapore


Hawksford Group has acquired Singapore-based corporate services business Janus Corporate Solutions.

Established in 2009, Janus provides company secretarial, accountancy, business support and immigration services. The business has over 1,500 clients and has experienced revenue growth of 30 per cent year on year. 
Janus has 40 employees and will continue to be run by chief operating officer Jacqueline Low, supported by her team in Singapore and the Hawksford management team.  The original founders of Janus, Amardeep Misha and Pardeep Boparai, will leave the business after a short transition period. 
“The acquisition of Janus has a significant impact for Hawksford. We are committed to offering our clients the highest quality services in the locations they choose; this client service philosophy underpins our decision to expand into Singapore,” says Maxine Rawlins, chief executive officer, Hawksford. “We searched long and hard for a high quality business in Asia that would complement our existing service offering, and we are delighted to welcome the Janus team to the Hawksford Group.”
Misha and Boparai add: “It has been very gratifying to see Janus transform into an international business in just four years. We have worked extensively with Hawksford on this acquisition and we feel that there is a great fit between the companies and a tremendous opportunity for continued growth. We believe that Janus’s employees and customers will both benefit and have a very exciting future ahead.”
In the last three years Hawksford has completed the acquisitions of Key Trust and Trustcorp Jersey and has established a presence in Switzerland and the Middle East.
