Four senior accountants have created a corporate finance office in Edinburgh as an offshoot of Belfast-based deals advisory firm HNH.
The new team will advise in the £1m to £50m range and has set up operations in Charlotte Square.
The new office represents a significant investment by the firm in establishing its first office outside Northern Ireland. It consists of Neal Allen and Bruce Walker, formerly of KPMG, Harry Linklater ex-French Duncan, and Chris Fawbert who was formerly at EY.
The new team has already worked on a deal for food service firm R&W Scott and another in the distilling sector.
Director Neal Allen said: “We’re all excited to join HNH and build the business in Scotland. While some business owners are rightly cautious because of Brexit and global economic concerns, many of our contacts, particularly in food services, are telling us they want to execute growth plans.”
