How do I sell my business?
In managing the affairs of our clients, we understand that an entrepreneur will allocate much of their capital to their business. They are an Operator and understand the risks inherent in their business. It is the ‘wealth engine’ for creating the surplus capital that will hopefully increase over time to establish a capital pool capable of sustaining them long after retirement.It is also a factor that the business is only of real value to the individual when it sells, or when it is monetised in one form or another. It is for this reason that we can call on the specialist skills of one of our affiliate partners. The solutions that our team of specialists bring are tailored to businesses seeking to raise capital, acquire or restructure, with the view to exiting as lucratively as possible.The following steps are managed by our affiliate partners on behalf of a business in preparation for a sale transaction:
