The directors of Shard Media Group (SMG) have acquired mortgage events business Financial Services Expo (FSE).
SMG is the parent company of Reward Strategy, Credit Strategy, and Turnaround, Restructuring and Insolvency (TRI) News.
Financial Services Expo (FSE) was launched in 2013 by James Prosser, formerly of Clarion and Incisive Media. Prosser has spent the past seven years developing FSE into the UK’s foremost mortgage and protection exhibitions with events in London, Manchester, Scotland and East Midlands. The aim now is to build on this and broaden this out to a wider range of lenders and advisers.
FSE events will take place during autumn 2020, enabling SMG to build on the opportunities available while taking a responsible approach to the issues surrounding the coronavirus and COVID-19.
Nick Miller, chair of SMG, said: “This is the first acquisition for Shard and while it has completed at a time of caution due to COVID-19, we have tracked FSE and James for over three years.
“We look forward to building a base for further growth of the group both organically and by acquisition.”
