A sector driven, service product agnostic, approach
- Client led approach based on long-term, strategic and deep relationships
- Specialism in: (i) travel, leisure and hospitality, (ii) retail (ecommerce, luxury, D2C) and (iii) consumer goods and services
- Strong track record of raising capital (equity and debt) in both public and private markets, and M&A sell-side processes
Our pledge to our consumer clients is that we will give you sector focussed advice based around your requirements. We have the advice, products and services to cover the different options for our growth clients and we will help you select the best route for your business, whether that be in the public markets, the private markets, via equity or via debt and then we will deliver that.
There is rapid change being experienced across the consumer sector. Models are becoming polarised between value and premium offerings, asset-backed operators and online facilitators, and pure retail and experience-led consumption. Adding a fluid macro, regulatory and legislative backdrop, as well as capacity issues, to the mix creates both challenges and opportunities for incumbents and new entrants alike.

The team prides itself on its extensive sector knowledge and comprehensive network. We specialise in a number of sub-sector verticals with particular focus in: (i) travel, leisure and hospitality, (ii) retail (ecommerce, luxury, D2C) and (iii) consumer goods and services. In each of these sub-sectors, we have a strong track record of raising capital (equity and debt) in both public and private markets and in advising on shareholder exits via M&A sell-side processes.
Our client led approach is around building long-term, strategic and deep relationships. Choosing the right funding structure to deliver your growth plans is of fundamental importance and our highly experienced team could not be better placed to advise, promote your story, and help you access the capital that supercharges growth or returns capital to shareholders of the UK’s most ambitious consumer businesses.
We have a breadth of experience in providing strategic advice to a range of companies - from earlier stage growth businesses, to privately backed scale-ups, to established, profitable PLC enterprises. We work with entrepreneurs, business founders and owners, Private Equity owners, PLC boards, and management teams alike.
