Lurse Acquires Interest in Deutsche Pensions Group
German HR consulting firm Lurse in August 2018 announced the acquisition of the business interest of one of the partners of pension software provider Deutsche Pensions Group (DPG) who is retiring, while majority shareholders Ulrich Mix and Dr. Otmar Stüpp stay with the company. DPG will continue to be managed independently and be headed by Mr. Mix.
A member of the Worldwide Broker Network (WBN), Lurse is an HR strategy consultancy that focuses on compensation, pensions, and talent management. It has branches in Germany and in Zurich, Switzerland.
Based in Germany, DPG is a developer and provider of corporate pension systems and services, based on its P-Live software and on many years of experience in handling risk management processes in an asset-liability management context, from preparing expert opinions all the way to performing dynamic asset-liability management.
According to managing partner Matthias Edelmann, the acquisition allows Lurse to expand “its corporate pension [plans] business”. Lurse and DPG have a combined staff of 130 people who will offer comprehensive consulting and administrative services for corporate pension plans.
Lurse may later acquire additional interest in DPG.
