Our strategic service is focused on helping family business managers make better, more rigorous and quantified business decisions – whether for growth, planning for the future, making investments or disposals, or raising finance.

At the heart of any business decision is a financial forecast. Such forecasts are likely to come from financial modelling that combines robust assumptions and key commercial parameters based on knowledge honed over years of experience.

Grant Thornton supports our clients to developing the analytic and research-driven insights vital to successful business strategies and financial forecasts.
