Our Team

After qualifying ACA at BDO, I moved to the Mergers, Acquisitions and Private Equity team at RSM, where I spent a number of years completing transactions across the mid market. I eventually moved to a Corporate Finance boutique Seneca, where I specialised in leading mid market trade and private equity transactions from inception to completion.

After working alongside owner managers in Corporate Finance for the last 10 years, I felt like the market was really missing a true Mergers and Acquisitions offering run itself, by an owner manager. I therefore joined up with the Ascendis Group, to launch Ascendis Corporate Finance and Advisory Limited (ACFAL).

Having worked on trade and Private Equity transactions ranging from £3m to £300m, we specialise on delivering successful exits for owner-managers, SMEs and shareholders in this range.

I will always be the lead on any transaction from engagement to completion.

M&A – Managing Director

After qualifying ACA at RSM, Roger built his technical knowledge and project management skills as he progressed through the ranks of the Audit department, through three promotions.

Having built his base level knowledge of Corporate Finance, Roger has joined the CF team, to assist Christian across a range of transactions.

Roger brings a wealth of technical knowledge, mid-tier understanding and SME management skills to the team.

M&A – Manager

Exit Readiness

The key to any transaction, will be competitive tension created by the Ascendis sale process, and getting the timing right for you.

It’s never too early to prepare a business for the eventual exit of key shareholders and decision makers.

As advisors for growth, we want to engage with you along the growth phase of the business, so that when the time is right, the business is ready to take advantage of a successful process.

We will work closely with you to prepare the business for a process. This will include, but is not limited to:

Get Started

We typically work on a largely contingent basis with our fee structure linked to the successful delivery of a transaction and aligned to shareholder value.

Our goal is always to work with entrepreneurial owner-managers, to try and help them maximise the value for their shareholdings while protecting the legacy of the business and its employees in the future.
