“conception, design, and implementation of complex and often cross-border corporate finance deals”
“best-in-class impartial advice and execution to principal investors”
Phoenix is a liaison of experienced M&A and Industry executives who specialise in the conception, design, and implementation of complex and often cross-border corporate finance deals. Phoenix was founded by Steve Lennon on the basis of prior corporate finance and European private equity experience, and has developed a wide mandate as an M&A boutique advisory firm with a focus on the financial service sector in Europe, and a particular expertise in the Italian market.
The primary focus of Phoenix includes business planning, strategic advisory, and deal-shaping for incoming investors or target entities, as well as sourcing, raising, and confirming of multi-tranche equity providers to drive M&A transactions. Phoenix is often responsible for the entire investment cycle, covering the sourcing and structuring of investment opportunities (principally in the European market) as well as the implementation, negotiation and execution of M&A (deal) processes.
Phoenix strives to provide best-in-class impartial advice and execution to principal investors, tailored to deliver the best individual solutions, and promotes a mid-long term investment horizon. Phoenix stands uniquely behind that guarantee by subscribing to equity participation alongside investors (“skin in the game”) which allows a sharing of the success and the risks of the transaction.
