Based in Melbourne, with 20 years of history, Leydin Freyer has forged a position as one of the leading providers of corporate governance services to ASX listed companies. The acquisition doubles the size of Vistra’s operations in Australia and expands its footprint across Australia’s two largest cities, Sydney and Melbourne. This transaction further solidifies Vistra’s global position as a leading corporate service provider and fund administrator where nearly 5,000 professionals in over 45 jurisdictions help clients to work smarter, grow faster, act responsibly, protect capital and scale across borders.
“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, finance, tax and administration services. Our colleagues look forward to joining a global organisation where they will have more career development and international experience opportunities,” said Melanie Leydin, Founder and Managing Director, Leydin Freyer.
Melanie Leydin and General Manager, Simon Davis will remain with the business and join Vistra. Leydin Freyer will be rebranded to Vistra upon completion of the transaction.
