Sandaire, the international multi-family office, has announced the launch of Sandaire Corporate Finance, a new division to serve the evolving needs of its clients. By broadening its relationship-led services, this new initiative marks a key milestone in Sandaire’s long-term growth strategy.

Sandaire Corporate Finance will provide independent M&A and strategic financial advice to entrepreneurs, high net worth individuals and family-owned businesses. The scope of advice available to clients includes advising on business disposals and acquisitions, joint ventures and strategic alliances.

The division will harness Sandaire’s existing international networks and will provide dynamic market insights based upon an informed perspective to help clients achieve their overall objectives.

James Fleming, Chief Executive of Sandaire, said:

“We are seeing a real increase in clients’ appetite for integrated advice. By closely aligning wealth management with corporate finance through the launch of Sandaire Corporate Finance, we are responding to an increasing level of client demand.”

Spearheading the expansion is Paul Staples, who joins Sandaire as Managing Director of Sandaire Corporate Finance. Paul will be responsible for leading and growing a team of experts to deliver tailored, high quality independent financial advice.

Paul has over 30 years’ investment banking and corporate finance experience and joins Sandaire from Deloitte, where he was a senior partner leading the TMT advisory franchise in the UK and EMEA. Prior to this, he was Head of UK Corporate Finance and a member of the Management Committee within the Investment Banking division of BNP Paribas.

Paul Staples, Managing Director of Sandaire Corporate Finance, said:

“I am excited to join Sandaire as it enters an exciting new phase of development. With access to the combined strengths, network and market connectivity of the Sandaire platform, we are well positioned to advise clients on the optimal approach for navigating a changing market environment.”

Warwick Newbury, Chairman of Sandaire, said:

“Since its inception, Sandaire has focused on evolving to meet and anticipate the ever-increasing needs of clients. Our history is rooted in building strong and enduring relationships and supporting our clients with clear and purposeful advice. Sandaire Corporate Finance is a natural expansion of this focus.

We have ambitious plans to grow and diversify our offering over the next five years, and we look forward to working closely with Paul to drive further growth and continually enhance our service with a unity of purpose.”

The expansion follows a succession of senior additions to Sandaire’s leadership team in recent months, following the appointments of Janet Tarbet as Client Relationships Director, Andy Mattocks to the newly created role of Head of Corporate Development, and Marc Cane as Head of Risk and Compliance.
