ZEDRA completes the rebrand of US Global Expansion Specialist, Axelia Partners

14 November 2022

This latest acquisition reflects ZEDRA’s ambition to be recognised as an international leader in global expansion services

London, Boston ZEDRA, a global provider of Global Expansion and Corporate Services, Active Wealth, Pensions & Incentives, and Fund Solutions, today announces that it has completed the integration and rebrand of US global expansion specialist, Axelia Partners, to ZEDRA Global Expansion US. The rebranding follows the firm’s acquisition by ZEDRA in March 2022.

ZEDRA Global Expansion US facilitates the expansion in the US of predominantly European headquartered businesses and entrepreneurs by providing all the back office services necessary to operate compliantly in the country. Services include accounting, financial control, tax compliance, legal housekeeping, HR and payroll.

ZEDRA Global Expansion US complements the firm’s existing US offering and reinforces the team’s wealth of expertise in San Francisco, Miami and New York. ZEDRA’s newly integrated team also fits perfectly alongside the London and the Amsterdam teams which already provide the full suite of tax, HR and financial compliance services to fast-growing US headquartered companies expanding into EMEA.

ZEDRA will be hosting an event in New York on 17th November where clients, intermediaries and employees based in the region will celebrate the launch of ZEDRA Global Expansion US.
