Expert support to both pre-empt and negotiate activist attacks
We help our clients engage effectively with their shareholders so they can navigate the risks and opportunities resulting from ESG considerations, including activist challenges.
As well as assisting in business strategy, this expertise is increasingly important in structuring and successfully executing M&A transactions, allocation of capital, and driving support from investors.
We meet our clients’ needs to determine and evaluate how best to respond and act in the interests of all stakeholders, how to address misperceptions and maximise support and valuation in the event of an activist event.
Our experienced team includes former equity sales, fund managers and brokers connected to over 400 investors worldwide, from the largest global asset managers to boutiques, wealth managers and pension funds. We hold deep understanding of how to influence, access and drive support.
