Palamon was contacted for comment but did not reply.

Investors Reportedly Eyes To Acquire Towry

Four firms are embroiled in a fight to acquire Towry Holdings Limited, Wealth Manager understands. Towry was put up for sale before Christmas by its owner Palamon Capital Partners, LP after plans to float the business were abandoned. Palamon hired Evercore to find a suitable buyer for the firm, which have been valued at £600 million. It is understood that after the first round of bids, four potential suitors have been selected as the process enters its second round. It is believed all four firms are from a private equity background. Private equity firms have been increasingly active in the wealth management space after the revolution in UK pensions created a big opportunity for the sector. One of the most active players has been Permira Advisers Ltd. Towry refused to comment on the speculation.
