Montreux Healthcare Fund Owns 9th Largest UK Care Group After Merger

The merger also means The Regard Partnership provides care and support for more than 1,000 people making the company the estimated 4th largest UK care group offering specialist learning disability and mental health care.

The Montreux Healthcare Fund owns the 9th largest care group in the UK following the merger of two of its companies.
The ACH Group, which operated 25 residential services in England, last month formally merged with The Regard Partnership which provides learning disability, brain injury, and mental health care.

It now means The Regard Partnership, headed by chief executive officer Sandie Foxall-Smith who this year was named as an Investors in People's Leader of the Year, provides care and support for more than 1,000 people making the company also the estimated 4th largest UK care group offering specialist learning disability and mental health care.

A Montreux investment vehicle acquired ACH Group in April 2014 for £40.5m, followed six months later by the Montreux Healthcare Fund purchasing The Regard Partnership for £119.5m.

The Isle-of-Man-domiciled Montreux Healthcare Fund is advised by Montreux Capital Management (UK) which oversees more than £200m worth of assets.

Montreux Capital Management's managing partner Oliver Harris says the merger represented the next operational step to add value to the Montreux Healthcare Fund, which has returned over 50% in one Share Class since launching in 2014.

"Since the merger we have had The Regard Partnership valued by a leading global Royal Institute of Chartered Surveyors-accredited valuer at £202m," said Mr Harris.

"For us this is confirmation that the specialist care market continues its strong growth trend, and remains a real attraction to investors.

"We are continuing to offer high-quality care to service users as this is at the core of everything we do."

"Moreover, a number of further opportunities for the Montreux Healthcare Fund are already being actively explored."

The Montreux Healthcare Fund holds majority equity stake in The Regard Partnership which according to care group rankings by leading UK care home web portal http://www.carehome.co.uk lists The Regard Partnership as 9th.
