New corporate finance firm launches in the South West

By Nick Batten on 11 November, 2021

Harbourside Corporate Finance has become the newest corporate finance outfit to launch in the South West.

Based in Bristol and built around an experienced team from regional accountancy firm Milsted Langdon – with whom it remains integrally connected – Harbourside now has the full operational autonomy and independence to work in a cohesive, collaborative and non-competitive way with the crew of other advisers to the client.

It has been created as a specialist corporate finance boutique to bring a personal approach to professional advice. The team of experts aims to help businesses in the South West to grow and flourish, while supporting the need of their owners.

The firm will primarily work with SMEs in the UK and their referrers, including accountants, solicitors and other trusted advisers.

Offering personable and approachable services, the team at Harbourside Corporate Finance has decades of experience skilfully navigating clients through the often-unchartered waters of buying, selling or financing their business.

Susannah Adams, Head of Harbourside Corporate Finance, said, “It is great to see that so many businesses are exploring mergers, acquisitions and financing for future investment.

“The UK is undergoing a scale-up revolution as entrepreneurs seek out new growth opportunities.

“We are excited to be a part of this through our new boutique firm and can’t wait to support businesses across the UK.”

With few boutique firms of a similar size and experience profile to Harbourside in the South West or surrounding regions, the team can offer an agile and cost-effective alternative service to businesses and their advisers.

Although the company may be new, its core team of specialists has decades of experience helping to broker, finance and negotiate some of the South West’s most interesting deals.

“We are looking forward to working with a wide range of accountants and advisers as they support their clients’ success,” added Susannah.

“Although our team spent years developing skills and connections within Milsted Langdon, as a separate entity, we are free to pursue new projects independently and without any conflicts of interest arising.”
