Amsterdam - September 23, 2016 - Intertrust N.V. ("Intertrust" or "the Company") [ticker symbol INTER], the leading global provider of high-value trust and corporate services, announces that the acquisition of Elian Group ("Elian") from Elian's management and funds managed by Electra Partners LLP has been completed.

Combined company

With the addition of Elian, Intertrust is now present in 31 jurisdictions, with 42 offices and approximately 2,400 employees. Elian further reinforces Intertrust's position as the global leader in the trust and corporate services sector by strengthening its Capital Markets and Private Equity & Real Estate Fund Administration Services, expanding its geographic presence to jurisdictions such as Jersey, and adding scale in other key locations like Ireland, the United Kingdom, and Cayman Islands. The combination also enhances the career opportunities available to the combined company's employees. Intertrust's listed status underscores its transparency, adds to its attractiveness as an employer and makes it the "go-to" company for financial institutions, funds, corporations and high net worth individuals.

Key management positions within Intertrust have been taken up by members of the Elian management team. Paul Willing, formerly Chief Executive Officer of Elian, has been appointed to the Intertrust Executive Committee as Head of the Atlantic Region and Colin MacKay, formerly Group Head of the Americas, has joined the Intertrust Executive Committee as Managing Director Intertrust Cayman Islands.
