Our business centres on the provision of a range of services which are intended to assist our clients in achieving their corporate development objectives and realising shareholder value. These include:

  • Board and interim management support - non-executive, interim management and corporate governance support.

PGD Strategy has an impressive track record of success in these areas as is illustrated by the diversity and complexity of the projects we have managed, several of which are profiled here.

The firm has a broad base of skills and resources and is capable of delivering its corporate finance and strategy consulting expertise in most industry and service sectors. This is reflected in a variety of assignments it has undertaken for clients in industries ranging from insurance, reinsurance, risk management and financial and professional services to entertainment, media and communications, information technology, software and business solutions and fashion.

We have a particular focus on the provision of strategic advice and project management to clients in the financial services and insurance sectors in which members of the team have substantial experience acquired over many years. This specialist practice covers a wide range of service areas including insurance and reinsurance (broking, underwriting and Lloyd’s), fund and wealth management and diversified financials.

The PGD Strategy team possesses an outstanding skills set and a wealth of experience.

Our key people have all served in senior management roles within blue chip organisations in the UK or overseas and have acted for a wide variety of sophisticated clients. The team’s track record in deal making spans over 30 years and is reflected in the completion of numerous diverse, domestic and cross-border transactions with an aggregate value well in excess of £4 billion.

PGD Strategy aims to remain alert to new opportunities for expansion in growth and specialist sectors of the economy. Both financial and non-financial industry sectors are, therefore, kept under constant review so that the firm can take advantage of emerging trends in corporate activity.

PGD Strategy is an international firm and is able to advise clients in relation to UK as well as cross- border transactions.

The overriding principle underlying our approach is to provide our clients with independent advice and a personal, client focused service. We, therefore, strive to build strong relationships with our clients based on a deep knowledge of client service sectors and the provision of holistic business critical solutions which contribute to client development over the long term.
