Financial Modelling​

Management’s ability to make effective strategic decisions is largely dependent on the quality of information at its disposal. Our team has extensive experience in the review, design and construction of financial models.

Funding and IPOs

Whether the aim is to grow organically or through acquisition, there comes a point in the lifecycle of most businesses where additional funding is required. We work closely with your staff and external accountants, lawyers and other consultants to ensure a smooth transition on all transactions.

Mergers, Acquisitions & Divestments

When preparing for an acquisition, merger for sale, you want an advisory team that provides complete transaction support, from beginning to end. We pull together a team of specialists who have experience dealing across industries and services to make sure you have the best commercial advice at every stage of the process.

Strategic Business Consultancy

We analyse various parts of your business to see how we can maximise returns and growth. Thinking about your unique selling proposition, we benchmark and compare your business with competitors, so you have a complete picture of your position in the market.

Transaction Services

Investing in a business, either by acquisition or by becoming one of several shareholders, is an important financial decision. It is important to make a well-informed investment decision with consideration for both the potential returns and inherent risks of your acquisition target.


Business valuations are a great tool if you’re considering a transaction, assessing a new project or trying to source funding. We can help you understand the ‘value impact’ of any business decisions and best ways to maximise returns.
