Kin acquires CoSec business Derringtons

By 9 June 2021 July 13th, 2021 No Comments

We are pleased to announce that our parent company Kin Group has acquired Company Secretarial business Derringtons.

Established in 2006, Derringtons provides a broad range Company Secretarial services, ranging from corporate governance advice through to day to day Companies House filings. Clients range from listed investment funds to start up businesses. The business is led by Jane Muir, a fellow of the Chartered Governance Institute UK and Ireland (previously known as the Institute of Chartered Secretaries and Administrators).

“This acquisition is a natural fit for us and our clients. Kin’s overall aim is to make life easier for VCs; allowing them to focus on doing deals and allowing them to improve the experience they provide to investors. Particularly with fast growth businesses, exactly the sort of businesses that VCs are seeking to invest in, founders have rarely got the time, skills or inclination for Company Secretarial work. But, it’s important. Done poorly, the consequences can be severe and ultimately investors can suffer. Being in control of the Company Secretarial work allows us to make sure it is done to a high standard and better support our clients .”  Christian Elmes, Kin Co-Principal.

“This transaction is a great step for us. It brings a number of benefits to our existing client base; not least easy access to the broad range of services that Kin provides. It is also pleasing to have Kin’s support in growing the business and I look forward to welcoming new members to the Company Secretarial team shortly.”  Jane Muir, Derringtons founder.
