How do you help clients?

I help clients who are looking to float on the stock exchange, or who are looking to grow their listed business either by raising more funds from new or existing investors or through acquisition.

I also help investors with their private equity investments, where their funds are deployed to help a business to grow or to fund a management buy-out or where they are investing into a larger investment fund.
