At Obair Partners we combine our network of global relationships and deep knowledge of our focus segments with specialist investment, fundraising and M&A experience.

Services

We deliver a superior, senior level of service to clients who value experience, judgement, insight and innovative thinking.

  • Corporate Strategy

    In fast paced and rapidly evolving markets, our partners advise entrepreneurs and boards on corporate strategy and value creation. Our services incorporate business, acquisition and exit planning.

  • M&A Advisory

    When you are considering M&A, whether selling your company, or buying someone else's, we deliver access to the counterparties that matter. To assess the deal we provide detailed and reasoned valuation frameworks and scenario analyses. We help build the investment case, we prepare and co-ordinate the due diligence, and we work with you to get the right deal closed.

  • Fundraising

    If you are looking to raise capital to accelerate your plans we can help you find the right Growth Equity investor to achieve your goals. If you are planning to raise capital to finance acquisitions or to realise some of the equity value in your business a Private Equity transaction could be the solution. Obair Partners can help you find the right funding partners.
