Waystone emerges from merger of DMS, MontLake and MDO

DMS, MontLake and MDO have come together along with previous acquisitions to form Waystone, a business uniquely designed to address the increasingly complex needs of today's governance industry.

Since MML’s investment in Aug-19, Waystone has grown organically and through five mergers and acquisitions to position itself as the leading institutional global governance and third-party management company. Operating from eight global jurisdictions with over 320 employees, Waystone is well-positioned for growth, both organically and by way of acquisition. As it extends further into key regions, Waystone has the expertise and technology to build the investment structures and strategies required in today’s challenging environment.

Global CEO of Waystone, Derek Delaney commented,

“This is a hugely significant moment for us as we move forward together as Waystone, bringing our offering to the next level to become an institutional and defining market leader. As our industry continues to evolve rapidly, Waystone delivers a dimension of certainty for its clients while considering the needs of investors. The new brand is astute and flexible, reflecting our ability to keep pace with an ever changing and complex landscape.”

Richard Mayers, Partner at MML noted,

“This rebrand is a significant milestone in Waystone’s impressive journey over the last twenty years to becoming the institutional global leader in governance and third party management company services. Led by Derek, the team has accomplished a significant amount in a short space of time and the business is now exceptionally well positioned as a platform for future growth.”
