We are delighted to have advised the shareholders of Arlingclose Limited on a successful sale of the business to its existing management team. Arlingclose is an independent treasury advisory firm predominantly serving the public sector. Founded in 1993, Arlingclose has grown steadily over the past 28 years and now advises some 200 clients, primarily local authorities and councils. Based in the City of London, the firm prides itself on providing high quality independent financial advice on investment, borrowing, and financial management. It also offers market leading expertise on specific complex treasury related projects, such as capital financing, debt restructuring, and hedging arrangements.

Mark Pickering, CEO, led the buy-out from his fellow founding shareholders, supported by directors Mark Swallow, David Green and David Blake. All employees of Arlingclose are equity shareholders in the new structure.
