Together Financial Services has asked private equity firms to submit indicative offers this month, valuing the company at Â£1.5bn.
According to reports by Mark Kleinman for Sky Newsthe private consumer finance group is in talks about selling a minority stake, with Rothschild as an adviser to founder Henry Moser.
Moser is understood to be open-minded about the size of the minority stake that would be sold, but even a lower final valuation would net Moser and the company’s other shareholders a windfall of millions.
Bloomberg reported that Moser was considering a $1.4 billion sale last year.
He was on The Sunday Times Rich List in 2019, with his net worth estimated at Â£1.228 billion.
