We make strategy happen

We provide strategic advice to corporates, financial sponsors, fintechs, family offices and entrepreneurs

Raison d'etre

Laeceum was founded in 2017 and launched in 2018 with a mission to invert the traditional advisory and consulting model and to redress the historical risk/reward mismatch between client and advisor.

We believe clients deserve better.

Our Principles

Our principles underpin everything we do for our clients. We choose our engagements carefully based on the speed and durability of impact we can deliver to our clients. Our six principles drive everything we do from the minutest level of financial analysis to presenting our recommendations in the boardroom.

1 »

The client's best interests govern every action no matter how seemingly trivial

3 »

Dissent drives better analysis which drives better decisions

5 »

Question everything as long as it's the right question

2 »

Transparency and honesty at every step of the way even if it reveals unpalatable truths

4 »

Embrace collegiality and teamwork as a catalyst for change and innovation

6 »

Temper intellectual curiosity with real-world pragmatism

Our Promise

We are inherently sceptical about the value proposition of the classic client/adviser relationship . We know because everyone at Laeceum has been both advisor and client during their professional careers.

For this reason, we only allow our clients to pay us once they are unreservedly happy.

Our promise means that Laeceum bears all the risk until the end of the engagement. This ensures everyone’s interests are fully aligned and by keeping our skin in the game, our clients can rest assured that we will always do the right thing by them.
