As we usher in our seventh year since launch in 2018, we look back at the past year with immense pride. This year was one that saw us build on the already high highs of 2022 with some exceptional successes both in terms of impact for clients but also in terms of our talent pool.
It’s been an immense year for the Laeceum team as we continue to forge ahead supporting our growing roster of loyal clients as well as those that have heard good things about us and are actively wanting us to work with them.
Words alone will struggle to convey the year we have had and but hopefully the below will give you a sense of what we have achieved with our clients this year and why we are very optimistic for 2022.
Our third year was one that we are unlikely to forget for some time. Like most, this was a year of many firsts for us. Our first sell-side advisory mandate, our first C-level hire, and, our first time working with the tenacious and determined CEO of an aspirant digital challenger bank.
We opened the year with an innovative MBO-style advisory mandate. Working with the ambitious management team of a market leading and profitable data & analytics business, we structured a number of potential exit options, challenged the business plan and refined the pitch.
Whilst many of us have become habitually accustomed to brevity bordering on curtness in our daily correspondence, this short letter may meander, duck and dive much in the same way that Laeceum has in its first calendar year of operation.
