We are trusted advisers to business owners to whom we provide a wide range of advisory services

Financial Advisory

Business owners face a continual balancing act: in addition to managing the day-to-day running of their business to ensure deliverability of products and services to customers, they are also required to adapt internal business structures and processes according to performance, as well as developing and implementing business strategies to maintain profits. At any stage in their life cycle a business can face challenges to their success.

This is where our experts at One80 can help. We work closely with business owners to comprehensively analyse how a business is performing, so that a clear plan of corrective action to turn a business around can be developed and then implemented. The goal is to improve financial and operational performance and maximise value to stakeholders.


Balance sheet restructuring, also known as financial restructuring, provides a platform for businesses to undertake operational turnarounds and mitigate distress within.

The reviews carried out by our team are robust, independent and thorough. They clarify the true position of the business, making it possible to set out and evaluate the options that are available.

Our turnaround and interim support team preserve and enhance value, optimise financial resource and develop options for corporate recovery.

We work with businesses and their advisers on managed exits, helping to plan and implement the winding-down and closure plans of non-core or under-performing business entities as well as businesses that have simply served their economic purpose.
