Gunner & Co. take a unique approach to every business disposal, because we know that every one is different. We work with IFAs looking for straight forward retirement exits, businesses looking for JVs or mergers and part-owners looking to raise capital for management buy-outs.
Our business revolves around strong relationships built on trust, credibility and value – we focus on really getting to know what a vendor is looking for (and what they’re not), having a full understanding of their business to make the very best match possible. We understand your business because we’ve been there; we talk to FAs on a daily basis and, thanks to our partnership with IFA Magazine, we have our finger on the minute by minute pulse of the industry.
Through our tenure in the market, we have built long-lasting relationships with major acquirers and work closely with them to know how their offerings work, how they change over time, and what a great opportunity looks like to them. With this knowledge we can best position our vendor businesses for a successful outcome.
We actively work with IFA businesses from the outset to build value in their businesses as early as possible, primarily through our workshop calendar and consultancy services. We know that exit-planning can start many years before, and we want to support that journey all the way to a successful conclusion (have a look at some of our success stories here).
