We are very excited to be able to announce an exciting change of ownership, as Capita have agreed the sale of the Enforcement arm of their business (Equita, Ross & Roberts and Stirling Park) to Capricorn Capital Partners (Capricorn) and the Shackleton Group (Shackleton).
This is the culmination of months of carefully placed building blocks to form a collaborative partnership built on shared vision, synergies, and mutual goals.
Capricorn Capital Partners are a private equity firm that specialise in collaborating with management teams to foster growth and establish long-term partnerships. Shackleton Group comprises a collection of South African companies operating in the insurance and credit management sectors. This acquisition is a strategic move aimed at expanding into familiar sectors and geographies as part of an international expansion plan.
This agreement sees new opportunities, resources, and assets both ways, with a clear focus on processes, systems, and resources. With the changing landscape of enforcement, evolving policies, and technological advancements pushing the boundaries of what is possible, this will ensure all our enforcement businesses grow in a quality-controlled and consistent way.
All our day-to-day operations will continue without interruption, emphasising it’s very much a case of business as usual, with our leadership team remaining in place to ensure stability and continuity during the transition for all our clients and colleagues.
This change of ownership marks a new dawn for Equita, Ross & Roberts and Stirling Park, and we are all very excited as we drive the businesses forward for ongoing growth and success in the dynamic and evolving enforcement sector.
