Deal Advisory

 

Brackenbury has advised a number of leading Private Equity firms and institutional investors in some of the largest and most successful transactions in the retail and consumer products sectors in both Australia and New Zealand. 

 

Also since 2001 Brackenbury has completed a number of successful investments and divestments in its own right. We have acted as lead investors and worked with a number of legal and accounting advisors in both our own and other clients’ deals. Accordingly we understand what to look for when buying businesses and how to sell businesses.

 

Our experience and understanding of the retail and consumer sectors, coupled with a track record of Brackenbury’s own investments and working with other institutional investors differentiates us from other advisors.
