After doing an undergrad degree in accounting (India) and reading for an MBA in finance (USA) - in addition to taking professional exams in Cost & Works accounting and in Banking - I decided that this is all too complicated. So I spent 35 years buying and selling small businesses, and running them.
My full time occupation now is UK Business Brokers where I assist lower mid market businesses (generally £2m - £50m in t/o) navigate their way to an equity event. I act as a first stop advisory on strategy and help business owners find the right business broker, M&A / corporate finance firm or boutique investment bank to fit their individual needs & exit goals - from MBO to IPO. It's a minefield out there!
I maintain the UK's only database / knowledge base on all the talent in this industry - sector specialisations, fees, fee structures, FCA status, cross border transaction experience, awards won, feedback and reputation ...all sorts!
I'm well connected in the world of corporate finance / investment banking / corporate law, and I love introducing people. Let me know if I can open any doors for you or answer any questions you have about my world.
