Scandinavia is a pioneer in the application of digital services and
solutions and a very technology-friendly society. It was therefore only
logical for LPA to continue their growth path in the Nordics as well.
The Scandinavian market is a driver of regulatory change and with the
acquisition of CMP LPA is now perfectly positioned to meet local demand.
CMP, founded 10 years ago and now with 20 employees, is a well-known
player in the capital markets field. An important focus of their
successful business has always been in the technology sector as they
have accompanied various major Capital Markets Technology
Transformations throughout recent years.
For LPA, CMP is the perfect partner to develop and expand its
business in Denmark and the Scandinavian region. Although LPA already
has a strong client presence in the region, the acquisition of CMP opens
new perspectives. In order to fully exploit the growth potential in
Scandinavia, LPA needed an experienced local team. Together with the CMP
team, LPA is now able to serve clients better than ever before.
The local presence in the Nordics is an important added value for
LPA, but the CMP team is a great addition on different dimensions. With
its expertise, its values, know-how, innovation and technology affinity
CMP fits perfectly with LPA’s corporate philosophy. In addition, CMP
works very complementarily on the customer side and brings several new
customers into the LPA portfolio. They also have a strong presence in
market areas where LPA is not active yet in the region, but that are of
great interest for LPA – like Asset Management, Pension Funds and
The team of CMP will continue to leverage their Capital Markets
expertise to develop customer specific solutions and services. “With the
global reach of LPA and their technology led innovations we are now in a
great position to continue to transform the Danish and Nordics Capital
Markets industry”, says Lars Christiansen, Founding Partner of CMP. The
former shareholders Lars Christiansen and Christian Thygesen will remain
in the company as part of the leadership team as well as the current
and future Managing Partner Lotte Mollerup.
“For LPA, Scandinavia is and will be one of the key strategic
regions. We are excited to have found a local partner in CMP that fits
us perfectly – deep Capital Markets know-how combined with Technology
Innovation. We are looking forward to working with the leadership team
of CMP to continue to expand our footprint in Denmark and the Nordics
overall “, says Stefan Lucht, founding partner at LPA.
