Our values

Sir Siegmund Warburg, arguably the finest banker of his generation, once said that what he was striving for was “a reputation for efficiency and high quality brainwork”. He also said “in our kind of business continuity of valuable connections over-rides the conclusion of any specific transaction”.

The words may be dated. The sentiments aren’t. Warburg was a man who understood ‘our kind of business’ better than anyone. We draw inspiration from his thinking.

We provide pure conflict-free advice to our clients. Nothing else. We believe:

  • corporate finance is about relationships, not just deals
  • the best advice is rigorously objective, not cross-sold with other financial products
  • clients need to see a correlation between the fees advisers charge and the value they add


Everything we do is underpinned by these values.
