Investment Advisory

Investment advisory is an important part of Acorn’s activities. Acorn´s principals have extensive experience in corporate finance transactions, having completed a number of stock market listings, delistings, mergers and buyouts. This experience enables our Team to provide clients with innovative ideas and sound advice.

Acorn has never actively marketed itself as an advisor, rather we rely on our extensive network and reputation in the market to bring clients to us. The advisory activities create new or strengthen existing relationships that help grow our network and often lead to new investment opportunities.

Below is a list of advisory deals that Acorn has lead since 2011:
