Acanthus professionals have advised a wide range of leading and emerging private equity investors over the last 25 years through many economic cycles
As an independent, boutique advisory firm, we look to work in close partnership, often over many years, with like-minded teams with ambitious goals and a high degree of professionalism. Our expertise includes buyout, special situations, infrastructure and venture capital funds, advising on fundraising, secondary transactions and restructurings.
We have worked extensively in complex, transitional situations, including numerous ones involving spin-out firms. We seek to understand the detail from an institutional investor’s perspective, leveraging our extensive transaction experience across many cycles and our close understanding of investors. Our experience and approach runs well beyond distribution.
Equally, our strengths in team preparation, documentation and project management mean that we can provide valuable assistance to established clients who may be looking to optimise their fundraising processes.
We have invested heavily over many years in technology and research which underpins our client service.
Importantly, we only act for a small number of clients at any one time. Clients are assured that they obtain the full commitment of seasoned professionals and full follow through to completion.
