Superbia Group acquires Headley Financial Services with support from Shawbrook           

The Superbia Group has expanded its reach in the South East by acquiring Headley Financial Services Ltd, with new funding from Shawbrook.

Established in 2019, The Superbia Group is a collective of financial services firms, including Asset Intelligence Research, Asset Intelligence Portfolio Management and Financial Advisers, and Furnley House.

Shawbrook provided funding for previous acquisitions, and further supported the group with a flexible solution that delivered a day-one credit facility worth £6.7m, with an additional committed facility. 

This will enable the acquisition of Headley and support the management team to continue its growth strategy via future acquisitions.

Stefan Fura, managing director at The Superbia Group, said: “The Superbia Group has ambitious growth plans with a particular focus on expanding in the Midlands and South East.

“Shawbrook understood our strategy and structured a package that combined the funding immediacy for our first acquisition in the South East with a committed facility for our longer-term plans.”

Matt Croker, corporate finance director at Heligan Group, added:  “It was a pleasure to work with the team at Superbia and Shawbrook to help deliver Superbia’s fifth acquisition in less than 12 months.

“The acquisition provides Superbia with a scalable platform in the South East for further bolt-on acquisitions and Shawbrook’s team had the sector and regional knowledge to deliver the funding for the overall strategy and this transaction in the timescales required.”

Steve Armstrong, director at Shawbrook, said: “The Superbia Group’s immense development over the past few years is a testament to the strength of its growth model.

“We overcame some tight deadlines to get them the funding when they needed and we’re very pleased to be working alongside the strong management team as they continue to expand and capitalise on further opportunities. 

“We look forward to being part of their future success.”
