ACACIA CESSATION OF BUSINESS: The Specialized Finance world has changed dramatically since the 2009 Global Financial Crisis (“GFC”). Subsequent to 2009, Acacia has made a firm decision (in consultation / collaboration with our clients) to wind down / run-off our book, in a manner that satisfied our clients needs / expectations. This wind-down / run-off took some time to achieve as certain of the deals still had some time to run. Please note that as of January 2015, The Acacia Specialized Finance business has closed. All transactions have been wound down in an orderly fashion, (to the satisfaction of our clients – (clients are happy)) and the funding vehicles wound down / de-registered. All consultants / employees have found good alternate employment at leading SA banks.
