Making the connection

For many businesses, the simplest and most effective way to grow market share is through acquisition. For companies like these, committed to growing their businesses – whether they’re expanding brokers or established national insurers – we are well placed to assist in the process. With our knowledge of the market and our extensive network of industry contacts, we’re able to make the right connections between buyers and target companies or teams. Similarly, we work with venture capital organisations looking to provide backing for breakaway teams.

In each case we act as an intermediary. To begin with, we take the time to gain an understanding of the objectives and motivations of buyers and vendors. From what we know of the market we’re able to identify the best match for both parties and when the time is right, make discreet introductions. Confidentiality is key, and throughout we remain sensitive to the position of all parties. In the initial stages, we will profile buyers and vendors, but details will never be released until both parties agree to disclosure.

During these early exploratory stages, there are no charges involved for either the buyer or the vendor. Our fees only apply to the buyer once the deal has been completed successfully.

I would have no hesitation in discussing the most sensitive assignments with them and would be happy to recommend them to my colleagues and business contacts.
