We are a sector focused team bringing together both consultancy and true industry experience. Our sector expertise stretches over twenty five years and we have been engaged in a wide variety of assignments both in the UK and globally.
Our advisory services are focused on leveraging deep sector wide knowledge for the whole value chain combined with a broad range of advisory services from one of the leading firms in the UK and globally.
Our downstream automotive advisory practice seeks to advise stakeholders of the full value chain post manufacturing – we like to think of ourselves as the adviser of choice for vehicle usership over its lifecycle. This includes distribution, retail, the asset and consumer finance industry which play a critical role in the distribution chain, secondary and tertiary market suppliers and the whole range of funding providers.
As a result of focusing on the whole value chain we have an unrivalled view of the factors affecting these aspects of the automotive industry. We can advise on specialist areas such as funding, asset values and regulatory changes utilising the whole strength of our advisory practice.
We want to engage and work with our clients on a trusted advisor basis, seeking to deliver true bespoke industry specific advisory services that add value. As such our advisory services in this sector range from M&A/due diligence to forensic accounting, from restructuring to fund raising, from market reviews to taxation advice, and from assurance services such as statutory audit to business and cashflow modelling. We have a significant number of credentials which demonstrate our downstream focus and the specialist people we can employ to quickly understand key issues and then deliver the right solutions.
Our client base is both broad and extensive. We work for a range of clients in:
- vehicle distribution
- national sales companies
- motor retail
- motor finance
- contract hire and leasing
- rental and short cycle
- secondary and tertiary retail services
- equity stakeholders and debt funders
- insurance brokerage
Because we have over twenty five years of downstream experience, and a senior team packed with industry credentials, our contact base is unrivalled and we can deliver to the maxim "it's not what you know, it's who you know". Combined with the experience we have in the team, and the fresh thinking we can deliver, we believe we can have a say in how downstream evolves.
Our upstream practice is a globally focussed team, automotive demands to be engaged that way. Equally, the downstream team, with a large UK client base, is equally at home with overseas projects and have worked in a number of countries across all continents. We have a network of automotive advisers to call upon in every corner of the world and this allows us to cross borders in our thinking and benefit specific service such as M&A with contacts in major distribution and retail players from the major markets.
Our ethos is to deliver practical and added value services and advice – being sector focussed is a key factor and downstream combined with upstream expertise delivers a unique and compelling advisory and assurance offering.
