ACAMS, the Association of Certified Anti-Money Laundering Specialists, joins Wendel’s portfolio

Published : 03.06.2022

On March 10 2022, Wendel completed the acquisition of ACAMS, the world’s largest membership organization dedicated to antifinancial crime training, from Adtalem Global Education, an investment that represents a new milestone in Wendel’s 2021-2024 roadmap. Wendel invested $338 million of equity for a c. 98% interest in the Company, alongside ACAMS’ management and a minority investor.

ACAMS has developed a large, global membership base with more than 90,000 members in 175 jurisdictions. As a missiondriven provider of services that ultimately reduce the funding of terrorism and human trafficking (among other nefarious activities), ACAMS fits well with Wendel’s CSR values.
