Hong Kong and Australia, 9 September 2021 – Vistra, a leading provider of expert advisory and administrative support to Fund, Corporate, Capital Market and Private Wealth clients, today announced it has entered into a Sale and Purchase Agreement (SPA) with Leydin Freyer, an Australian based corporate governance, accounting, and company secretarial services firm.

“We are thrilled for this opportunity to bring together two organisations where there is a strong cultural and values-based alignment in providing superior service to our clients,” shared Jonathon Clifton, Regional Managing Director, Asia-Pacific, Vistra.

“This transaction significantly diversifies our Australian client base, with the Leydin Freyer ASX-listed clients complementing our existing international and domestic client portfolio, along with our fast-growing Alternatives sector. Through our combined strength and expertise, we are able to support a broad range of Australian companies both in their domestic and international growth aspirations.”

“This is an exciting time for us at Leydin Freyer as this transaction opens the door to new possibilities for both our clients and colleagues. Our clients can now tap into Vistra’s global network to access a wide range of corporate and fund administration services.
