The Company

An FCA-regulated wealth management provider based in the UK. The Company generated in excess of £1m per annum in recurring revenue and had an assets-under-management in excess of £500m.


The Assignment

We were engaged by the Company to provide a distressed IP valuation whilst the Company was undertaking a restructuring.

Our Approach

Utilizing our Metisology® approach, we identified all the IP assets that underpinned the Company’s operations and its revenue streams. We identified that the Company’s client book and databases were critical in both its daily operation as well as to ensure that compliance under both FCA regulations and GDPR was achieved. We conducted diligence in the transferability of these IP assets in an accelerated M&A scenario and assessed the extent to which the Company was reliant on its wealth managers (as human capital), which impacted our opinion on the value of the IP assets.

The Outcome

We delivered an IP Valuation reflecting the likely value of the IP assets from an accelerated M&A scenario. Management of the Company and their restructuring advisors relied on our report to assess the options available to the Company.
