Unlocking complex growth and profitability challenges with AI.
London, 6 December 2022 - GP Bullhound acted as exclusive financial advisor to Arca Blanca on its sale to Artefact.

The Arca Blanca team will double Artefact’s UK footprint and augment the Group’s offering, bringing new and expanded AI solutions to Artefact and Arca Blanca.

Ravi Lal-Sarin, CEO and Co-founder of Arca Blanca, commented: “We are excited about joining forces with Artefact, and the opportunities that this partnership brings for our clients and team. GP Bullhound have been a great advisory partner to us, and their relationships and deep sector knowledge were instrumental in delivering a successful transaction.”
