BTG Advisory, the boutique advisory arm of Begbies Traynor Group that provides commercial, strategic and partner-led advice to companies, investors, lenders and other stakeholders, has appointed four new partners to its London Canary Wharf office.
The firm said the appointments come as the advisory firm accelerates its growth ambitions and corporate finance offering to meet growing client demand for its services.
The new BTG Advisory partners include two high-profile external appointments, with Anthony Brennan joining from CameronBarney LLP and Paul Davies from Menzies, as well as the senior internal promotions of both Andrew Dalton and Sorca Hunt, effective immediately.
These appointments are “central” to BTG Advisory’s growth strategy and its commitment to further expanding its service delivery while broadening its client offering into new specialist areas.
The business has “significantly” invested in service diversification over recent years, bolstering its debt advisory, due diligence, transaction support, valuations and litigation offerings, which have helped BTG Advisory grow its revenue contribution to the Group’s London office from 5% in 2016 to more than 40% today.
Mark Fry, national head of advisory and restructuring at BTG Advisory, said: “I am delighted to welcome Anthony and Paul to our growing team, while congratulating both Andrew and Sorca on their very well-deserved promotions today.
“Our business continues to go from strength to strength, gathering momentum as our service diversification strategy continues to bear fruit, underpinned by consistently outstanding commercial, strategic and partner-led advice.In today’s fast-moving economy, UK businesses are facing more challenges than ever before.”
He added: “From growing technological and political issues, including Brexit, to tougher regulations and ever more stringent transparency and corporate governance standards to adhere to, management teams need to be at the forefront of understanding and addressing these challenges head on.
“Because of this, we are seeing growing demand from corporates, investors and lenders alike, seeking expert advice to support them through one of the biggest economic changes we’ve seen in recent years. Each of these four highly-skilled professionals has significant and specialist experience that will be invaluable to both new and existing clients alike, and as such we look forward to the future with great confidence.”
