Shield Corporate Finance provides a unique combination of corporate finance and consultancy support, internationally, all designed to help owners and managers increase the value of their businesses, and extract that value, at a premium, when the time is right for business exit.
Shield Corporate Finance was founded by David Young in 2001, with a determination to deliver remarkable results for sellers of businesses, irrespective of transaction size, in a world of financial advice increasingly biased in favour of acquirors. This has taken Shield's Merger & Acquisition team into fertile new territory, working with clients for a year or two prior to sale, in order to achieve best possible outcomes. In addition to considerable expertise and success in handling sale execution mandates and the commercial aspects of contract negotiations, Shield delivers unique consultancy services in 'Business Improvement' and 'Recession-Proofing' (featured in The Times, The Telegraph and Real Business magazine).
Operating internationally, Shield has offices in London, Poole and New York and representatives in Singapore, San Diego and Johannesburg. The team works in English, German, French, Italian and Mandarin Chinese, preferring mother tongue communication with clients and counterparts whenever possible.
This website provides client references, including a short video case study where an initial offer was tripled for owner managers.
Please contact Shield if you feel we might be able to assist you in any way. We appreciate that confidentiality is vital and understand that you may wish to remain anonymous. We are happy to call you outside of office hours or at weekends if you prefer.
