Contemporary FD Bitesized – November 2023

19th Dec 23

We are delighted to invite you to the next in our series of Contemporary FD Bitesized webinars. These are designed to supplement our live annual Contemporary FD Summit, which took place in September 2023 and will be back next year, where the CFOs and FDs of the country's most innovative and ambitious companies come together to share their ideas.

This webinar will be focused on Buy and Build as an explicit strategy for building value by using a platform company to make a number of strategic and complementary acquisitions. Whilst this is a tried and tested route to impressive returns, where do the secrets to success lie and where are the pitfalls?

Sarah Hunt, Founder and CEO of EquityFD will be taking a deep dive into this subject welcoming two seasoned CFOs with a wealth of expertise in this space:

Paul Lawes, Group CFO at Salutem Care and Education, a leading provider of complex care and education for adults and children in England and Wales. The business is a blend of Ambito Care, Pathways Care, Modus Care and Clearwater Care and is Private Equity backed;

Kevin Budge, Group CFO at a number of Private Equity backed, Buy and Builds, including Financial Options, Avelo, Optionis and most recently Nasstar Group, one of the largest providers of managed services in the UK which itself has been formed from over 20 acquisitions.

Whilst Paul and Kevin come from very different sectors, their practical insights and experiences share much in common.

Evelyn Partners' Mark Benka will be joining the panel and sharing up to the minute practical insight gained from working hand in hand with his client base.
