We operate a quality assured, totally flexible freelance network that allows us to assemble a bespoke team to deliver our clients' projects or transactions. Our low cost model means much better value for money, and by matching expert resources precisely to your needs you get the best fit for your project and only pay for exactly what you need.
Our advisers have collectively hundreds of billions of pounds in transactions behind them and hundreds of years of experience across corporate finance, M&A, capital markets, fundraising, investing, strategy consulting, accounting and operations gained at leading investment banks, strategy consultants, private equity houses and corporates.
Our pedigree is in M&A but we don't just do deals. We can work with you to understand the value of your business and develop strategies to optimise and unlock that value. Our fees are based on the work we do, not the strategic choices you make, so we are uniquely placed to give genuinely impartial advice.
We are a small, people focused business with the principle of shared value creation at its heart and a mission to help people achieve their full potential. We thrive on connecting people with each other, connecting people with opportunities, and bringing businesses together to create shared value.
We love to talk with founders and managers about their businesses and their work, so get us in for an informal chat with no commitment. Our promise is to understand your problem and to connect you with a team of experienced professionals who can help. If we can't, we won't pretend we can and we'll try to point you in the direction of those who will.
Our flexible freelancer model means we can help all sorts of businesses - large corporates, SME's, PE houses and PE backed businesses, entrepreneurs, right down to individuals. And our low cost model means that no question is too big or small for our team. Here are some examples to inspire you:
Daniel Gilsenan founded Gilsenan & Co after a 20 year career in investment banking and corporate finance in Melbourne and London. However, the "& Company" part of our name is the most important piece - our expertise is in identifying, retaining and incentivising the very best corporate advisory talent, outside of the framework of the traditional banking employment model. That is, bringing you the best talent, without the big bank cost base and fee structure.
Our services are provided by a network of carefully vetted financial analysts, corporate and investment bankers, business strategists and investment managers. Their pedigree stems from a diverse range of top international finance institutions and boutique advisory firms, making for a wealth of knowledge and an adaptive team that can be tailored to your business needs. Selected for their deep experience and resolute client focus, the individuals behind Gilsenan & Company are our greatest assets and we love enabling them to share their talents with our clients.
We are based in central London but have significant transaction and advisory experience across North America, Europe, Asia and Australia and our network members can work for you remotely or on site around the world.
These are some of the names you will find on our consultants' resumés:
