Our client was a global Real Estate investment manager with an excellent reputation in the market. They needed to fast track a product solution offering into new markets. Discussions with us identified the markets for expansion. They were open to considering a “lift out”, joint venture or strategic alliance. We recommended that they seek a friendly “lift out” of an established team, preferably with assets, as well as the expertise and experience in offering a specific strategy in their target markets where the current distribution team could enable rapid growth. 

Extensive research was undertaken, asset and performance data was collected and assessed on each potential team, and human capital resources were reviewed for potential fit with our client’s leadership team. Based on our assessment, our client chose the teams they wished to pursue. A discreet approach was made to the senior executive of each team and detailed discussions were held without breaching confidentiality. Interested parties were reviewed in depth with the client, NDA’s signed and meetings arranged.

Our client was able to go into discussions with potential teams armed with in-depth analyses of the strengths and fit to their requirements, data rooms were set up to review confidential documentation, and final agreements reached as to the timing and scope of the team’s remit when joining the company.
