Valuation and Business Analytics

Valuation and Business Analytics

Our valuation methodologies are of the highest standard and compliant with internationally accepted valuation theory. Most importantly we also employ sound commercial acumen in the process. For most transactions, disputes or planning, there will only be one opportunity to present all of the facts appropriately in order to secure the optimum result. Achieving this involves a delicate interplay of business acumen, legal expertise, technical knowledge and commercial pragmatism.

A valuation is often needed at a difficult or stressful time – whether a shareholder dispute, a potential sale, the breakdown of a relationship or simply the year-end audit process. We aim to deliver exceptional client service and meet our clients’ valuations needs in a timely and cost-effective way. Our combined experience means that there are very few situations which we have not encountered before. In addition, as there are many circumstances where existing advisors may not be able to assist due to an actual or perceived conflict, our team is expert in liaising with existing professional advisers in order to deliver an appropriate, fit for purpose report with a minimum of fuss.
