Castle Corporate Finance - It takes one to know one

The Castle team is made up of an eclectic mix of talented individuals looking to work with exciting clients on interesting assignments, providing excellent service, and having some fun along the way.

We thrive on providing our clients with the best experience, and are proud that we are not “suits” from the City seeking financial rewards above all else.  Our different backgrounds and skillsets combine in a completely unique way to give our clients maximum support and maximum insight. That is the Castle Experience.

What we value the most.


We apply empathy and psychology to the uncompromising world of corporate Finance. We build long-standing relationships with our clients based on trust and respect. We speak to you in plain English and will be frank and direct if needed to help you achieve your goals.


We always look wider than the deal in front of us to assess the potential of the whole situation. We are assured enough in our relationships to suggest other ideas and solutions, and we strive to develop a mix of opportunities, to the mutual benefit of all. 


The person who welcomes you on day one will be celebrating with you at the end of the process, and we go out of our way to ensure you feel comfortable and assured at every stage.



Our team of experts and proven track record set us apart from our competitors. We hold ourselves to a high professional standard and are relentless in our pursuit of the best outcomes for our clients.



We are the experts in owner managers and what makes them tick. This insight combined with our pure focus on corporate Finance achieves results. We don’t pretend to be something we are not.

Hard work brings its rewards.

While undoubtedly fun, attending award ceremonies is a rare luxury in the fast paced world of corporate Finance. That said, we are an ambitious and driven bunch and do take the opportunity to celebrate the successful deals we deliver for our clients (and with our clients) when we get the chance. Take a closer look at some of the recent awards won by our team. 

Castle Corporate Finance - We know pride and joy when we see it.

Our Window on the World.

We have developed a unique network of international corporate finance firms in 23 countries – not through a bought-in affiliation, but through personal relationships and a mutual interest in getting deals done.  We regularly leverage this global network for the benefit of our clients, whether to source the right funding partners, or access potential purchasers that may not normally arise if relying on desktop research alone.
