Last month Duff & Phelps announced that it signed a definitive agreement to acquire Kroll, the global leader in complex investigations, security and cyber solutions, from Corporate Risk Holdings.

Established in 1972, Kroll has an unparalleled record of helping clients manage compliance, navigate litigation and mitigate risk relating to fraud, impropriety and security threats. The transaction dramatically enhances the combined firm's broad suite of services in the areas of valuation, corporate finance, compliance, investigations, security and cyber solutions. Kroll will also significantly expand Duff & Phelps' global scale, most notably in Europe and Latin America. The combined organization will have nearly 3,500 employees located in 28 countries around the world.

Noah Gottdiener, Duff & Phelps Chief Executive Officer, said, "Bringing together these two world-class organizations will significantly expand our global scale, broaden our client offerings and create great opportunities for our colleagues. Both firms share a common culture and heritage of putting clients first, and the combination will only strengthen this commitment. I welcome our new colleagues to Duff & Phelps and look forward to joining forces to build one great team."
