Guernsey-based Active and Optimus groups to merge

Two of Guernsey’s leading corporate governance and regulatory compliance service providers are to merge.

The shareholders of Active Group and Optimus Group are delighted to announce the merger of the two groups bringing together the two most experienced corporate governance, risk management and compliance service companies in Guernsey.

Wayne Bulpitt, founder of Active Group and Peter Mills, founder of Optimus will become joint chairmen of the enlarged group.

“We believe this merger will enable us to set the standard in corporate governance, risk management and compliance, delivered through new technology and a vast pool of experience in all sectors, while importantly maintaining a personal service for our clients” said Mr Mills.

Bulpitt added “our two groups share common values and we are delighted that as well as strengthening our position in Guernsey, together we will be even better placed to develop our multi-jurisdiction proposition and technology based solutions in the ever changing world we see ahead.”

The merger is expected to go ahead at the beginning of July 2018, subject to regulatory approval of change of control.
