Consumer

Finding solutions

We are trusted experts on advising clients to find the right owner or the very best financing solutions as they redefine their strategies in this fast-moving sector. As consumer spending habits rapidly change, clients need to find innovative and flexible funding to enable their businesses to take advantage of the opportunity and corporates need to rebalance their portfolios to maintain growth.

Our team has advised a number of entrepreneurs, leading multinationals and private equity houses over many years providing excellent outcomes against this fast-moving consumer landscape. A growing middle class, a greater desire for experiences, the e-commerce revolution, and changing habits among the millennial generation have all put great pressure on the sector. We rise to these challenges time and again, and find the solutions that businesses seek to overcome them.
