Everything within corporate finance starts with understanding value. Without a valuation, how can you recognise what truly drives or detracts from a business’s worth?


If you’re looking to acquire a business or raise finance, valuations provide a sound base from which to negotiate and allow you to look ahead by identifying the ways of boosting value after the deal is complete. If you’re thinking of selling your business, a valuation is essential to helping you benchmark progress and identify areas where you can enhance value for the greatest return.
