Financial due diligence

Making the right investment decision can have a significant impact on shareholder value.

To make an informed investment decision and create the best value from the transaction you will need the following:

  • an understanding of the target business
  • identification and understanding of key business drivers
  • an understanding of all the relevant issues
  • clear analysis, conclusions and recommendations

Pragmatic and commercial reporting with a focus on key issues 

We are focussed on supporting our clients make that informed investment decision. We help clients do that by providing them with robust financial due diligence services that are clearly linked to their requirements as purchaser and also suitable for their funders. 

We pride ourselves on our assignments being closely led by partners and directors, so that you get the benefit of our most experienced and senior people. 

We tailor each engagement to meet your specific needs and prioritise our focus to key risk areas.  This approach allows us to answer your key questions and allows you to confirm whether your investment rationale is robust.
