Grant Thornton success at Private Equity awards

Leading business and financial adviser Grant Thornton UK LLP is celebrating success following the Real Deals Private Equity Awards 2018, where it received the UK Corporate Finance House of the Year accolade.

The annual Real Deals Private Equity Awards draws attention to the accomplishments of the private equity industry, and those with the job of advising it.

Grant Thornton’s corporate finance team was awarded the accolade, acknowledging its market leading advisory services on UK deals completed in the calendar year of 2017. The award recognises the team’s efforts in creating value for clients through outstanding execution and the provision of genuine market and sector insight, as well as the overall evolution of team and strategy.

On the award, Andy Morgan, Partner and Head of Corporate Finance Advisory, commented: “We are delighted to have won the award for UK Corporate Finance House of the Year. This reflects the exceptional performance of our team across the country and the fantastic deals we are delivering for our clients.

“This recognition as the leading corporate finance team in the UK for private equity is testament to the impact our blend of sector expertise, local delivery capability and international reach is having in the market.

“2017 was a very busy and exciting year for our team, with a record number of deals delivered. This momentum has continued through Q1 2018 and, notwithstanding economic and political uncertainties, we continue to grow the business and look forward to another strong year”. 

The award builds on recognition earlier this year, which saw Grant Thornton named as the UK’s number one financial adviser by volume in the latest Experian MarketIQ M&A Review.
