What we do

CFA UK & Ireland specialises in assisting businesses and their owners to create enterprise value for themselves and their organizations, guiding our clients through the complex business of mergers, acquisitions, divestitures, and recapitalizations. We have global reach as part of the Corporate Finance Associates Worldwide organisation www.cfaw.net

Selling, buying or financing a business is a complex process that requires thorough preparation, skilful negotiation, and intimate knowledge of markets and financial resources. With CFA UK & Ireland, you'll work locally with a senior principal, who can provide expert valuation, analysis, and negotiating skills, as well as preferred access to a national and international network of CFA industry experts and resources.

Our people

Serving as your partner throughout all phases of the transaction process, your CFA principal will guide you through every challenge, advocate on your behalf, and leverage our firm’s wealth of experience and resources to see you through to a successful close.
