Richard established the Mandanex group in 2013. The group’s guiding philosophy is the facilitation of cross border business in the middle market, by providing access to our teams on the ground, each of whom has strong networks in their home markets. It currently has operations in Australia, New Zealand, Indonesia, Singapore / Malaysia and India. We have representation in Europe and North America. We see joining IR Global as a natural extension to this work, and very much look forward to connecting throughout the network.
The Mandanex group acts for clients in a broad range of industries across our footprint. Our work is principally in the areas of:
Mergers & Acquisitions
Transition / Succession Preparation
Our business valuation work has a strong technical focus but also draws on deep sources of data to support theoretical market values. We perform fully compliant valuations under international standards.
My business partners and staff across each country come mainly from strong industry and professional services backgrounds. Hence, our advisory work typically takes a very pragmatic approach, suited to the client’s business, seeking to add value throughout the process and practical in its application, all with the end transaction in view.Show more +
