Rob introduced us to interesting businesses that otherwise we may never have come across. No matter how broad or specific the brief, he always provided compelling companies to talk to. Ive not found anyone else with such extensive expertise and knowledge of deal origination.

Rob, Tom and Jas offer a refreshingly positive contrast to the opaque and opportunistic origination work often conducted in our industry. As a trusted part of our team, they’ve aligned perfectly with our values of transparency and professionalism, communicating with potential investee companies with the utmost respect and humility. They add real value.
