Vistra, the fast growing corporate services Group, today announced the acquisition of HVK Family Office Services ("HVK FOS"), part of the consultancy firm HVK in the Netherlands. With this acquisition, Vistra strengthens its recently launched Family Office Services Division.
Founded in 2011 by a group of former PwC professionals, HVK is an independent consultancy firm in the areas of Tax Advice, Tax Structuring, Family Office Services, Legal & Notarial Services and Financial Advisory Services. The acquisition of HVK's Family Office Services division enhances and supports Vistra's recently launched Family Office Services Division which is focused on advising, implementing and managing group structures for the Family Offices of High Net Worth Individuals and Families.

By bringing both companies together, we will be able to further extend our existing specialized service offerings to single and multi-family offices.

Jac Veeger, Director of HVK FOS, adds, "We will be joining one of Europe's fastest growing corporate services groups, which will bring benefits and opportunities to our existing clients and staff. Since Vistra is a leading player in the High Net Worth Individuals and Families market segment, the combination of both companies will create a strong platform for further growth in the Family Office Services business.Our clients will be able to benefit greatly from the broader range of services and on the ground presence in other key jurisdictions of Vistra. Obviously, our clients will keep their existing contacts to ensure business continuity."
