Speaking on the transaction, the Group CEO of ARM Holding Company Limited Jumoke Ogundare, said:

“The market in which we operate is ripe for consolidation and I am confident that the proposed combination will create a formidable pension funds administration business leveraging Access Group’s expansive distribution network and innovation culture to deliver sustainable value to stakeholders.”
