The finnCap Cavendish consumer group specialises in working with consumer businesses in the travel & leisure, retail (ecommerce, luxury, D2C) and consumer goods and services sectors.

The team prides itself on its extensive sector knowledge and comprehensive network. Our client led approach is around building long-term, strategic and deep relationships, which are combined with intensive periods where we complete transactional mandates.

Being able to prove the appeal of the consumer proposition is often key to unlocking value, particularly by showing that consumers trust a brand or the business and associate it with certain values. An important skill, which we believe we are very good at, is conveying and presenting that value, so our clients, or the purchasers of our clients, understand what consumers love about it – and how this will ultimately translate into turnover, profit and value.

Orlebar Brown and Margaret Dabbs transactions are two good examples where the value achieved by finnCap Cavendish was as a direct result of our ability to communicate the strength of the businesses and their brand values to buyers.

The Consumer team has significant experience in advising its clients (who are entrepreneurs, business founders, management teams and institutional financial owners) through the variety of funding, exit and capital options, while always working to deliver our client’s ambitions.

The Consumer team will advise its clients on: selling businesses; buying businesses; and raising debt or equity – in both the private and the public markets.
