Gambit Corporate Finance LLP, a Corporate Finance advisory firm with offices in London and Cardiff, has achieved gold accreditation against the Investors in People Standard, demonstrating its commitment to high performance through good people management.
Gambit has just celebrated its 25th anniversary, and was named the most active advisor in Wales over a ten year period from July 2006 to July 2016. It is an owner led business which allows the Partners, who lead on all transactions, to have a personal understanding of how businesses thrive, develop and optimise value.
The team has a depth of knowledge including expertise in IT Services, Healthcare, Facilities Management, Human Capital and Food and Beverage. A specialism in debt advisory has also recently been added to its client offering.
In February 2017, Gambit formed a partnership with Cardiff Metropolitan University and Development Bank of Wales and have supported a joint research programme for a graduate of the university. It has proved to be a huge success and has resulted in award nominations. Gambit has well established relationships with a number of local universities and has an active graduate programme.
Training and development is an important part of the Gambit ethos, and the team are encouraged and supported throughout their studies and continual professional development. Gambit is proud of its inhouse graduate programme which also offers the ICAEW Corporate Finance qualification.
