our approach

Not all advisors are the same.
Some are very knowledgeable about their sectors.
Some have great transaction experience.

Ascendant’s clients get both.

our difference

Working for your success

Ascendant is the only London head-quartered technology and health focused corporate finance adviser that researches and publishes briefings on the UK and Irish venture markets.

Our quarterly research is widely regarded as best in its class and frequently covered in many newspapers and journals including the FT, Growth Business, etc. For our clients considering acquisitions and disposals, we also produce bespoke research on M&A and MBO/MBIs trends to give insight on transactions that they are planning. With decades of experience in our markets, Ascendant has an inside track on market developments and the connections to make deals happen.

To be clear, Ascendant does not advise on corporate or investment strategy. It is not a research or publishing house. It does not make money from running networking or awards events. Ascendant only advises on corporate finance transactions.

Our priority is getting money into or getting money out of our clients’ companies. This cannot be done for all businesses and we will only work with the companies that we are very confident that we can help succeed. We only advise a small number of companies each year but once engaged Ascendant commits to work with you until the transaction is completed using all our resources – people, knowledge, experience and connections – for your success.
