Luxembourg-headquartered Centralis Group today announced its intention to expand its real estate service offering through the acquisition of Luxembourg-based service provider Ferris Group.

The firm specializes in individually tailored solutions, including consolidation and accounting services, corporate secretary and compliance services management and controllership services, business continuity support, transaction support and Yardi Voyager implementation coordination and support.
