Who are we?

The KCFA is an independent alliance of specialist professional firms providing services on a regional basis including lead advisors, solicitors, private equity and venture capital providers, debt and asset finance providers and accountants specialising in due diligence and tax.  KCFA members work together to provide expert advice to management teams and shareholders of businesses who are seeking to perform one, or a combination, of the following transactions:

  • selling a business;
  • seeking to perform a management buy-out;
  • seeking investment;
  • making an acquisition;
  • identify businesses for a management buy-in; or
  • raising finance.

Background

The Kent Corporate Finance Alliance has grown out of a coalition of specialist local professional advisers meeting to network and discuss mutual business opportunities.  The KCFA in its present form was established in September 2009 by senior partners of founder member firms which meet as the “Founders’ Committee”.

In January 2010, the Founders’ Committee elected a Steering Committee to administer and manage the Alliance with the remit of establishing an external, client-facing presence to enable us to achieve our clearly defined Vision:
