GBG is the UK market leader in identity verification services and in the provision and analysis of customer information.
The company’s technology enables clients to combat identity fraud and money laundering and to make business decisions based on a thorough understanding of customer data.
Listed since 1995, GBG has become a major international player. It has a strong position serving mobile phone companies, such as Vodafone and O2, and banks, like Lloyds and Citigroup.
Frog completed an exit of its stake in GBG to public investors, including Blackrock, in April 2013.
“Frog worked closely with my team and me to add new talent to the Board, to move from the main market to AIM, and to back the acquisition of four companies, one of which involved a rights issue. They have many contacts, both in the UK and internationally through businesses they invest in and associates they know, particularly in the technology arena. Accordingly they proactively provided us with valuable intelligence, business leads and strategic observations on how they see key markets are developing."
