About Us

♦♦♦♦♦

Since 1996 we've provided specialised corporate advisory services
We have a well-deserved reputation for excellence in providing smart, sensible, and cost-effective corporate finance solutions for our clients.
Our focus is mid-market transactions - those involving businesses worth between $5 million and $100 million.
If you need to sell a business, buy a business or raise capital, we'd like to talk to you. We'll spend time getting to know your business and its needs - before recommending and helping you implement a course of action.

WHY SHOULD YOU DEAL WITH US?

DEAL WITH PRINCIPALS
All engagements are actively managed by the principals. You get 24/7 access and you are not paying to train junior staff.

SPECIALISATION
Corporate finance is all we do. That means you get better advice and more efficient service. It also means we aren't trying to cross-sell other products and services.

EXPERIENCE
The current principals have worked on all engagements since 1996. The principals have personally assisted over 100 clients in over 180 engagements, including over 40 M&A engagements.

 INDEPENDENCE
First City is owned by its principals. We owe our loyalty to no one but our clients. We will give you frank and fearless advice.

 CONFIDENTIALITY
Confidentiality is critical in corporate finance engagements. Our small team and organisation guarantees no leaks. In a large organisation tens or even hundreds of people may be privy to your information.

 GLOBAL REACH
First City is an affiliate of the world's best international M&A network for mid-market transactions. If you are buying or selling a business, you'll receive unmatched international exposure.
