Investors

We support investors across the entire life-cycle of an investment. From the initial commercial due diligence supporting the review of a potential  investment, to preparing the commercial vendor due diligence for an exit. In between, we provide ongoing support with initial 100-day plans and/or corporate work strategy, with particular focus on growth/M&A, in line with the services we provide to corporate clients. We also work with investors in supporting overall fund investment strategies by reviewing macro themes and sectors to drive specific investment ideas.
