LONDON, Oct 26 (Reuters) - The Carlyle Group said on Monday it had agreed to buy a majority stake in funds network Calastone from its current owners including venture capital investor Octopus Ventures and Accel for an undisclosed sum.
Carlyle said the deal, for an unspecified stake in the company, remained subject to regulatory approval.
In a separate statement, Octopus said its investment in Calastone, which provides automated order routing, settlement, dividend and transfer services to asset and fund managers, had returned nine times its total investment.
