The transaction was announced on 16 November 2012.

Neonet is a Swedish independent brokerage/execution service provider at the forefront of electronic trading. Hay Tor Capital is a specialist financial services investor.

A consortium of KAS BANK and Neonet’s management also acquired minority interests in Neonet.

Watkins says: We are pleased to have advised Hay Tor Capital on this important strategic acquisition. Financial markets are becoming increasingly electronic and Neonet has proven expertise in algorithmic and electronic trading and brokerage services across European markets which will complement Hay Tor's client offering."
