Friend offers a full range of Corporate Finance services, providing independent financial advice to corporates, institutional investors and individuals seeking to buy, sell or invest in businesses, raise new finance or improve existing funding structures.
Our team consists of partners and directors with a wealth of experience and a proven track record of completing transactions across a wide range of sectors and cross-border. We have extensive experience within the Manufacturing, Technology, Software, Automotive, Retail, Support Services and Healthcare sectors.
We have well established relationships with our clients, financial institutions and other advisers and these relationships are often crucial to the success of transactions. We primarily work with owner managed businesses or businesses with private equity backing, but we are also happy to work with entrepreneurs to help them source seed-capital.
We believe the key to successful corporate finance transactions is a thorough understanding of our clients. We work with you over a period of time to develop a strategic view of your business, making us best placed to identify and advise on strategic opportunities as they arise.
Our Corporate Finance team works closely with our Audit and Assurance team to groom businesses for potential sales or acquisitions ensuring that the target or vendor Due Diligence process runs smoothly. Where appropriate, we will ultimately act in a lead advisory capacity for our clients, ensuring continuity of knowledge which ultimately reduces unnecessary costs.
