What is “Vialto Partners”?

Vialto Partners is a brand of CD&R Galaxy UK Opco Limited (Vialto UK) under which the Vialto entities operate and provide professional services. Together, Vialto UK and the other Vialto entities form the Vialto Partners network. The term “Vialto Partners” may refer to the Vialto Partners network as a whole or to individual Vialto companies, depending on the context. In many parts of the world, it is a legal requirement that companies providing services such as those offered by Vialto Partners must be owned by local professionals (in Austria: shareholders as defined in § 56 Abs 1 WTBG or shareholders as defined in § 21c RAO ). While some parts of the Vialto Partners network operate as a multinational company, the entire Vialto Partners network cannot currently operate as such.

For these reasons, the Vialto Partners network consists of both legal entities wholly owned by Vialto UK, similar to the structure of a multinational company, and separate, local legal entities. The companies that make up the network are committed to working together to provide high quality services to clients around the world. The companies in the Vialto Partners network are either subsidiaries, affiliates of Vialto UK or have other connections to Vialto UK. Vialto UK provides services to its customers and facilitates coordination between the member companies of the Vialto Partners network. Vialto’s management team focuses on key areas such as strategy, brand, risk and quality, developing and implementing policies and initiatives to achieve a common and coordinated approach between the individual companies. Vialto UK, its subsidiaries and the local companies in the network can use the Vialto Partners name and the resources and methods of the Vialto Partners network are made available to them. In addition, all companies within the Vialto Partners network, whether wholly or locally owned by Vialto Partners, may request the resources of other companies in the network and/or secure the provision of Professional Services by other companies within the network. In return, the companies, including locally owned ones, agree to adhere to certain common guidelines and to comply with the Vialto Partners Network standards proposed by Vialto UK.

The Vialto Partners network is not an international company or partnership, and Vialto companies are not otherwise legal partners with each other. Vialto companies may have legally registered names that include “Vialto” or “Vialto Partners” without being owned by Vialto UK. Such entities cannot act as agents of Vialto UK or any other Vialto entity, cannot bind Vialto UK or any other Vialto entity, and are liable only for their own acts or omissions and not those of Vialto UK or any other Vialto entity. Similarly, Vialto UK cannot act as an agent of such Vialto Company, cannot bind such Vialto Company and is liable only for its own acts or omissions.
