Consulting M&A have supported their client Edgar, Dunn and Company, the global strategy consultancy firm for payments and digital financial services, in the sale of their US Industry Forums & Roundtables to Auriemma Roundtables, a leading business intelligence provider for the consumer finance ecosystem.
Created in 1992, Edgar, Dunn & Company’s Industry Roundtables are forums for the constructive exchange of new ideas and best practices among senior-level risk executives from leading financial institutions. Auriemma Roundtables’ stable of Roundtable offerings will now increase to nearly 40 groups, expanding its expertise in credit risk, commercial cards, and private label while deepening its relationships in unsecured personal lending.
The new groups include Risk Manager, Private Label, Commercial Card, Instalment Lending Management, Instalment Lending Collections, and Fintech Fraud Roundtables. The acquisition will augment Auriemma Roundtables’ position as a key partner for financial services companies to navigate the current environment, identify best practices and perform peer benchmarking. Edgar, Dunn & Company will continue to run its global Payments Strategy Consultancy headquartered in San Francisco, with offices in London, Paris, Frankfurt, Dubai and Sydney.
“Auriemma Roundtables represents a perfect strategic fit for the roundtable business of Edgar, Dunn & Company,” said Peter Sidenius, Managing Director of Edgar, Dunn & Company. “While we have always valued our roundtables and the relationships we have built with our members, the continuing need to build stronger and better data analytics capabilities and tools is best met within Auriemma Roundtables’ bigger group of roundtables. We look forward to continuing to provide consultancy services to our previous roundtable customers.”
