Broader Thinking, Higher Values

Our founder, Jim Keeling, set up Corbett Keeling 30 years ago to spearhead integrity in corporate finance. He wanted to guide clients the way his father and grandfather had done, with honesty and a sense of responsibility. Jim's wife Emma, who also has a corporate finance background, joined as COO in 2015.  

We are an independent, London based, corporate finance firm with a strong focus on selling UK privately owned companies worth £10-150 million. We offer a tailored and personal service to our clients guiding them through successful transactions every step of the way – we are not a business broker.  As a family owned business without the constraints and conflicting interests, we’re able to take the long view.

Our broader thinking approach is underpinned by the high values of our founder, a stickler for telling the truth. We’re proud to achieve an average 40% uplift in sale value for our clients compared to their initial expectations, along with a 90% deal completion rate.

We are proud of our clients
