We're based in the Isle of Man, but have broad international experience. We have a network of professional partners around the world, including in the UK, Éire, USA, UAE, Hong Kong, Tokyo, Jersey, Malta, Gibraltar, Switzerland and RSA.
Predominantly our work is within the financial services sector: Insurance, Investment, Wealth Management, Pensions, Private Equity, Commercial, Residential and Holiday Property, and Independent Schools. But the scope of our work is ever-increasing — it's always worth asking how we can help you.
We're experienced and ready to help throughout the business life-cycle, from start-up, growth, ongoing management, expansion through to maturity, and where appropriate, exit.
Yes, we do. We encounter some situations again and again, so we can't help but feel particularly attuned to them. Strategy Formulation & Implementation, Management Mentoring, Corporate Governance and Organisational restructuring, Shareholder Support, Project Management and Business Partnering, Litigation support and Negotiation, Alliance Development and technical marketing. Interim MD and FD, Deal support, to name a few.
