How our business model benefits our clients.

Partnering with a corporate finance advisor is no small order. We’re honoured that you’re

considering our firm to help you sell your business. Whether you’ve owned it for most of your

working career or you’re looking to make a change in preparation for your retirement years,

we’re here to help make the process of selling a business as easy and low risk as possible. That’s why

we’ve worked hard to develop our business model to benefits clients of any size and in our



Excellent customer satisfaction

Our team’s success hinges on our customer satisfaction and the results we produce. We recognise that the decision to sell your business was most likely a difficult one. It’s not always easy to find the right buyer for something you’ve poured your life into, which is why our priorities are focused on treating our clients the same way we’d want to be treated.


This level of commitment routinely leads to above excellent marks from our clients. They’ve

come to value our expertise, dedication, and detailed process that ensures that their

transaction exceeded all expectations. It’s the first way that our business model benefits

clients, and by far one of the most important aspects of partnering with our company.


No upfront fees and No retainers

Marketing firms build their livelihood on the retainer concept. More often than not, lawyers

won’t even engage a dialogue with a potential client before there’s a retainer in place.

Retainer fees are relatively commonplace in the business world, so it only makes sense that

your corporate financial advisor would also require them, right?

Let’s dig deeper. Some companies require pre-paid upfront fees plus retainers while some simply go for a retainer. Both scenarios can lead to exorbitant costs, lower customer satisfaction and a longer than necessary sales process. What happens if you’ve already spent tens of thousands of pounds on retainers trying to sell your business and have yet to have success? This often happens and leaves sellers felling unhappy with the brokerage model.


Of course, we pride ourselves on our excellent customer satisfaction, so what does that say

about retainers or the need to bill you for upfront fees?


In a nutshell, we don’t charge either of them – Why?

We believe as experts in our sector that we know the market, we know the buyers, we know the process and this should ensure that we deliver the right outcome for you. In the unlikely event that we cannot secure a buyer for you then both parties can walk away, and we will not commit you to a forever success fee.


We put our skills and effort where our propositions are, and our service fee is based on successful – Success for you!

Our focus is on making sure you’re not only satisfied with our services, but that we help you

sell your business at the right price and within a reasonable timeframe.


No forever tie-ins

Our lack of retainers and upfront fees is yet another way our model benefits our clients. A third

way is no forever tie-ins. In most corporate finance business’s, they commit you to at least a 12-month period or they commit you to pay a success fee after the termination of the contract. For us neither gives the confidence that the outcome will be successful or that the business has total confidence in your proposition.

We expect to support you and achieve the right results, we are experts in the marketplace, and whilst no advisor can guarantee 100% success you don’t want to be tied to a broker for an extended period unless you are seeing tangible results. If we cannot find the right buyer for you over a reasonable period, then we would expect to agree the next steps. That maybe a pause in the process or it maybe an agreed termination. Either way this is your process and your business, and the decision needs to be right for you without the bind of an advisor holding you back.


The Venture Corporate sales process

In fact, we’ve developed a smooth four-step sales process which allows each of these

components of our business model to benefit clients.

First, we spend a great deal of time investigating your business. This takes upwards of five

weeks to complete, as we want to be as thorough as possible in our initial due diligence. Next, we

prepare for our marketing efforts, including the transactional documentation, weekly meetings, and buyer’s meetings. Then, we negotiate the Heads of Terms before moving on to due diligence and completing the deal.


A business model to benefit clients

Our model was designed to serve you — our clients — with a process that’s easy to

understand and offers unmatched benefits. From our excellent customer satisfaction

testimonials to no upfront fees, no retainers, or long-term commitments, our focus is on

helping you successfully achieve this transition. Our team has extensive experience in the corporate financial advisor industry, and we’re committed to supporting our client’s step by step through the entire process.
