Gambling advisory business Regulus Partners has acquired consultancy firm Global Betting & Gaming Consultants (GBGC).
Under the acquisition, GBGC’s global betting and gaming data and reports will move under the Regulus suite of products. In addition, the GBGC research team in Isle of Man and Croatia will join the Regulus team.
“The GBGC database and team are a great fit for Regulus because they have always been as accurate and thorough as possible in an often opaque and uncertain environment,” Regulus co-founder Paul Leyland said. “We intend to invest further in the team’s proven capabilities to ensure that we develop a market leading product.
“Given the increasing scale and complexity of the industry, there has never been a greater need for high quality data and we are delighted to welcome such a high quality team to the Regulus family.”
Warwick Bartlett, who founded GBGC in 2001, will continue as a non-executive director.
“Regulus is a good fit for GBGC because we both complement each other in so many ways,” Bartlett said. “The combined business will be able to offer the gambling industry and its stakeholders an unparalleled service.
“The clients of both our businesses will benefit tremendously from the additional services that will assist them in the management and expansion of their businesses.”
