Centralis today announced their intention to expand their Cayman business operations through the proposed acquisition of the business of Cayman-based directorship services provider Danesmead Ltd. The deal will see the acquisition of a varied client portfolio across the alternative asset space, including private equity, real estate & hedge funds.

Centralis Group is a leading alternative asset and corporate services provider, offering a full range of services and expertise to its global client base. It has established itself as an industry leader, providing a customer-centric tailored service via over 270 highly experienced professionals.
