To develop a successful corporate strategy in today’s dynamic business environment, management needs creative and objective advice – often within a tight deadline. When your company faces critical financial decisions, our consultancy division, Value Focus, can help you consider different approaches that are closely aligned with your business goals and strategies. We work with clients to identify ways to measure and improve shareholder value, analyse strategic options, and conceptualise and analyse capital structures. Our approach draws upon a number of core disciplines and focuses heavily on the linkage between finance, strategy and risk.

Value Focus is a leading authority on value improvement. This expertise has enabled us to advise senior executives across a range of industries on the most important issues they face, including:

  • Managing for Value Improvement – building the strategic and organizational capabilities necessary to consistently deliver industry-leading returns to shareholders

  • Managing for Performance Improvement – determining where and how to manage costs, capital and other investments to grow long-term value

  • Improving Value through Acquisition – building a capability in identifying, screening, acquiring and integrating companies to fuel company-wide value growth

  • Improving Value through Organic Growth – growing the top line faster and more profitably through better customer insight, product propositions, pricing and marketing investment

Strategic Focus on Value Improvement – developing winning strategies that exploit profitable differences from the competition to achieve and sustain breakthrough performance.

Our focus on value improvement enables us to bring a distinctive point of view to each of these areas. For some clients, we support organised efforts in most or all of the five areas described above. For others, we advise in one or two key areas. No matter what the scale and scope of our involvement, however, our goal is always the same: to help our clients achieve exceptional results and build lasting capabilities.

Our approach is also unusual. We collaborate with our clients on their toughest issues and biggest opportunities. We challenge deep and strongly held beliefs; that said we never forget that our role is to support change.
