Mills Selig advise long standing client Kerr Henderson Group on disposal of its pension scheme administration and actuarial consultancy business to Deloitte

Mills Selig has advised Kerr Henderson Group, one of the largest independent financial advisory firms in Northern Ireland, on the acquisition by Deloitte of Kerr Henderson (Consultants and Actuaries) Limited (KHCA) – its pension scheme administration and actuarial consultancy arm.

The Kerr Henderson Group will continue to operate independently and provide other financial services within its remit, including private client, workplace pensions, employee benefits and general insurance services.

John Kerr, CEO of Kerr Henderson Group, said:

“In choosing Deloitte to acquire our defined benefit business we identified similarities in culture, particularly around how we look after our clients and our people. We are delighted that our people will continue to deliver a high-quality service for our clients within Deloitte.

The Mills Selig team provided us with expert commercial advice throughout this transaction and made sure they were always available for us when we needed them resulting in each of them feeling like part of the Kerr Henderson team rather than our external counsel. Chris Guy and his team simplified complex legal issues in a manner that ensured we were best placed to proceed to completion and avoid unnecessary delays.”

Chris Guy, Head of Corporate at Mills Selig said:

“The team at Mills Selig were delighted to work on this transaction on behalf of our longstanding client Kerr Henderson Group – John together with Michael Kerr and the 30 strong KHCA team have worked incredibly hard to build the expertise and reputation of KHCA, which has ultimately led to Deloitte making the strategic decision to acquire this business in order to boost its pension scheme administration centre of excellence in Belfast as part of its wider commitment to expanding its business in Northern Ireland.”

Chris Guy was supported by senior associate Darren Marley with additional assistance from Hannah Gilpin (all Corporate), partner Kiera Lee (Employment) and senior associate Naomi Gaston (Banking).
