Cyber Security

Cyber security is an increasingly important topic in the board rooms of businesses large and small, with the volume and severity of attacks continuing to rise. The sector is characterised by extraordinary levels of dynamism, innovation and an extreme shortage of qualified people. These market dynamics will make cyber security a hotspot of M&A and fundraising activity for many years to come.

We have completed more transactions with European cyber security companies than any other adviser. We are passionate about cyber security, and our deep experience with both product and services companies within the space allows us to deliver excellent outcomes for our M&A and fundraising clients.
