Baker McKenzie in the acquisition of GlobalCorp for Financial Services 

Baker McKenzie has successfully advised a consortium of financial investors led by Amethis and included SPE AIF I (SPE Capital) and European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD), on the acquisition of a 95% stake of GlobalCorp for Financial Services.  
The deal marks a key milestone for Amethis and SPE Capital as it aligns with their strategies to invest in Egypt, which is a key market for financial sponsors in North Africa. The transaction also presents the first investment by Amethis in Egypt and the second investment by SPE Capital in Egypt through SPE AIF I.
