Not a jack of all trades

We are a specialist financial services advisory and consulting boutique with a sector agnostic SME Data & Analytics capability


Our Strategy services provide mission critical support to senior decision makers looking to devise, execute, accelerate or adjust their strategic agenda.

From conception to implementation, we design, deliver and drive corporate strategy through the client organisation.

Working fully in sync with client teams, we form robust revenue growth plans, cost-out programmes and profitability enhancing initiatives. Good strategy is not the preserve of the boardroom. We bring strategy from the boardroom to the shop floor and make it permeate every level of our client’s businesses.


Our Advisory services provide vendors and acquirors with a proven approach to move swiftly from preparation through to completion with light touch involvement from the Principal.

For acquirors, our buy-side M&A service identifies potential acquisition targets and accelerates the diligence, structuring, negotiation and completion phases with hands-on support at the coal-face.

Working directly with the CEO, we work at pace to identify, engage and transact with suitable targets following extensive market screening, financial and operational due diligence, management meetings and heads of function workshops and challenge sessions.

SME Data & Analytics

Our bespoke analytical and modelling tools help clients rapidly and robustly identify high potential customers, augment their internal credit and underwriting processes, and, develop cutting edge market and competitor intelligence.

Our forward-looking algorithmic propensity models can help early identify pockets of overperforming or underperforming companies within the UK SME market. We work with clients to understand what ‘good looks like’ in terms of target prospects and bottom up, we then engineer Machine Learning powered algorithms to identify these prospects on a recurring or one-off basis.
