Liberty advises the management team of Phaidon International on their agreement to partner with global investor consortium led by Further Global.

Phaidon International, the professional services firm focused on identifying, sourcing and securing business critical talent to roles across more than 4,000 clients, has entered into an agreement to be acquired by a global investor consortium led by funds managed by Further Global.

The investment will see Phaidon's current sponsor Quilvest Capital Partners exit the business, with management retaining a significant stake. Further Global's investment, supported by client funds from Neuberger Berman, Pictet and OPTrust, will continue to fuel Phaidon's growth which will see the business scale to beyond 1,400 staff and 15 offices around the world by the end of 2022.

Phaidon International operates a deliberate brand strategy that delivers talent to sectors including Financial Sciences, Supply Chain, Life Sciences, Engineering, Technology and Regulatory & Legal.  The company deploys its capabilities across its existing network of offices, with a number of other locations planned.

The team at Liberty have helped support us seamlessly through this important milestone. Their advice and experience has been invaluable to the whole management team.
