Financial Services

Despite the turbulence of recent years there is no doubt that the UK remains a major hub of international finance and will be so for the foreseeable future.

The government agenda to break up the power of the big banks, restrict proprietary trading and cap bonuses forms part of a move towards greater competition in the market.

Along with the more choice for consumers will come exceptional opportunities for entrepreneurs. Smaller, niche players are finding a louder voice and are being welcomed by both legislators and consumers in a marketplace previously dominated by big multinationals.

The climate of change is welcome news for smaller operators and those offering specialist services, and has already inspired a number of ‘disruptive’ start ups.

Cavendish has a strong record in selling a whole range of entrepreneurial financial services businesses including those specialising in consumer finance, foreign exchange and debt collection. Our team is in regular contact with major UK and overseas financial services companies as well as private equity houses which focus on the Financial Services sector. We understand their acquisition requirements and, in the case of corporate acquisitions, and future strategic plans.
