Consumer

Effecting a step change to facilitate growth in consumer

  • Sector expertise that seeks out the right financial services to meet our clients' growth needs
  • Knowledgeable, proactive and approachable team
  • Strong track record of raising capital and M&A advisory in public and private markets

An increasingly time-poor but more affluent and socially-engaged consumer is driving rapid change across the Consumer (Retail, Leisure and Travel) sector. Choosing the right business model is of fundamental importance and our highly experienced team could not be better placed to advise, promote your story, and help you access the capital that supercharges growth for the UK’s most ambitious consumer brands.

Building on a strong relationship based on mutual trust and understanding of their needs, we help private and public consumer businesses achieve their aspirations. We have a breadth of experience in providing strategic advice to a range of companies - from earlier stage growth businesses, to privately backed scale-ups, to established, profitable PLC enterprises. We work with entrepreneurs, business founders and owners, Private Equity owners, PLC boards, and management teams alike,

There is rapid change being experienced across the Consumer (Retail, Leisure and Travel) sector.  Models are becoming polarised between value and premium offerings, asset-backed operators and online facilitators, and pure retail and experience-led consumption. Adding a fluid macro, regulatory and legislative backdrop, as well as capacity issues, to the mix creates both challenges and opportunities for incumbents and new entrants alike.

While Private Equity is a strong competitor for simple, cash generative business models that can be leveraged against, Equity Markets remain receptive to new issues in the Consumer sector and can be advantageous in terms of valuation and longevity of capital. Choosing the right business model is of fundamental importance.
