FTI Consulting has acquired Bold, a restructuring, transactions, digital advisory firm in the Netherlands with 31 billable staffers.

They will join FTI’s corporate finance & restructuring group.

FTI CEO Steven Gunby is pleased “to attract a powerful team with a great reputation in the Netherlands, a geography where we have not historically had a substantial presence.”

Klaas Wagenaar, who founded Bold in 2013 with Gerrit van Munster, called FTI an ideal partner that will allow his firm “to harness the expertise and coverage of an international player that shares our entrepreneurial approach to provide a more hands-on service for clients in the Netherlands.”

FTI expects to close the deal during the first quarter of 2022.
