Begbies Traynor Group (“the Group”), the specialist financial advisory services provider, today announces that, as part of the ongoing development of its advisory services, it is launching BTG Financial Consulting (BTG FC) which will incorporate the Group’s restructuring services-led practice.
BTG FC will specialise in Financial Consulting, Restructuring and Turnaround, Forensic and Risk Consulting and Technology Consulting.
The team will draw on its existing specialist expertise within the Group, offering a comprehensive range of multi-discipline services under one brand. Utilising the extensive capabilities of its domestic teams as well as the 100 specialist firms around the Group’s international network, the team will advise UK and international clients facing strategic, financial and commercial challenges in order to protect and enhance their enterprise value.
Clients, who are operating in increasingly complex markets, are seeking senior led advice and solutions and BTG FC’s mix of experts from a wide range of disciplines will allow us to offer truly innovative and bespoke solutions to meet those clients’ needs. Working within BTG FC will be a separate team of high value restructuring specialists, the members of which have an established track record of working with leading financial services companies to provide added value solutions in turnaround situations.
Mark Fry, Partner at BTG Financial Consulting, commented:
“The evolution of BTG Financial Consulting marks a key milestone in the development of our advisory offering. By bringing together our wide-ranging expertise and deep sectoral knowledge under one team, we are well positioned to serve the needs of our corporate, bank and private equity client base in a market which increasingly requires a multi-disciplinary approach to complex situations.”
