Private Merchant Banking
From raising capital for expansion to undertaking the sale of a business
Our Private Merchant Banking team provides business owners with strategic advice and access to the institutional and family office investment community. Business owners and investors value our discreet, entrepreneurial approach and the independent advice we provide.
At all times we work in your best interests in order to develop a long-term working partnership. Our primary focus are businesses based in the UK and continental Europe. In raising capital and in selling businesses, we reach international markets. We operate across a range of industries including retail, healthcare, real estate, energy and alternative energy.
Often clients looking to raise capital, do not want to sell control to private equity managers, nor are they necessarily ready to list on public markets where the demands for liquidity and hence size, may not be met. We can offer alternatives to these options, by placing minority equity stakes to the institutional market or the family office market. We also manage and structure debt private placements in appropriate circumstances, or we can act for clients looking to sell positions in public companies which we can handle on a discreet and confidential basis.
Mergers & Acquisitions
We are specialist advisers to business owners who are looking to sell their businesses. We handle the complete transaction and act as a trusted adviser throughout the deal process. Our ability to access international markets is often a telling factor in securing the best price on exit.
