Delta Capita acquires Dutch financial services boutique VP&P

13 October 2020 Consultancy.eu

International consultancy Delta Capita has beefed up its presence in the Netherlands with the acquisition of Voogt Pijl & Partners, a leading boutique similarly focused on the financial services industry.

The move comes around six months after Delta Capita received a financial injection of $150 million from Prytek, an investment company from Singapore. Delta Capita already belongs to the 1,000 fastest growing companies of Europe according to the Financial Times, and using the capital injection, the consultancy aims to accelerate its growth even further. 

Together with Prytek a growth path has been laid out for each of the four divisions of Delta Capita; consultancy, technology, solutions and managed services. The consulting arm of the firm helps clients from across the financial sector landscape with services including strategy, organisation, performance improvement, risk management, compliance and digital transformation. 

Delta Capita acquires Voogt Pijl & Partners

With the acquisition of Voogt Pijl & Partners (VP&P), Delta Capita gains a team of experienced project managers and consultants, and one of the more renowned brands in the Dutch consultancy industry. Last year Voogt Pijl & Partners was named one of the country’s top three management consulting firms in a survey of over 1,000 executives and managers. 

Amersfoort-based Voogt Pijl & Partners works mainly for banks, insurers and pension institutions, specialised in among others organisation design, digitisation of operating models and products/services, curbing risks, complying with financial services regulation and cost management.

“Bringing the strong team of Voogt Pijl & Partners on board within the Delta Capita family will really scale our consulting business and better help our clients in reaching their goals,” said Tom Kastelein, CEO of Delta Capita in the Benelux. “By joining forces, we can provide clients in the industry with a worthy alternative to the traditional Big Four players,” he added. 

For Voogt Pijl & Partners, the transaction closes a period of twenty years of independence. But in return, the firm will now be able to benefit from the broader service portfolio which Delta Capita brings to the table and its international footprint. Delta Capita also has offices in the UK, Hong Kong and Singapore – key hubs for the financial services sector. 

Another key driver for joining the UK-headquartered consultancy, said VP&P leaders Robert Voogt, Wouter Pijl and Maikel Miggelbrink, is that the firm will play a leading role in the direction of the combined consulting activities in the Benelux. “We strongly believe our shared vision on consulting will prove to be the key success factor to realise accelerated growth and enhanced benefits for our clients,” said the three partners.
