A partnership of distinction

the partnership

Like an elegant garment, a promising enterprise must display certain attributes to attract attention. Yet some characteristics both first-rate and of a lesser grade may not be so quickly apparent. Price, or valuation, is not always evidence of quality.

Although we are not tailors, we do pay close attention to patterns. Whatever the sector, we have found that successful businesses share identifiable traits. Those who fail exhibit similar faults.

This understanding allows you to receive a bespoke solution if you wish to proceed with an investment you have identified but also want to be certain of your choice.

the benefits

Time saving from due diligence to completion can significantly drain your time. To do these tasks well can be exhaustive, requiring a complete grasp of the minutiae and appreciation of the bigger picture.

Competitive deals investors typically secure a meaningful discount on company valuations by working with us, because we can call on previous facts and figures to aid your negotiations and ensure you dont overpay.

Empathy while you want a return on your investment, you will often want to share your knowledge and experiences to help a young business grow. We are mindful of the emotional impact of decisions, but sometimes must tell clients what they would prefer not to hear.

The best investment is often money spent finding out why you shouldnt go ahead. Galayev & Co are experts at providing such reassurance.
