GreenMount Advisory 2019 Outlook

GreenMount Advisory was established in September 2018, as the fruit of over 20 years experience in M&A Tax and Private Equity, by Executive Chairman Ryan Davis (EY’s former Asia Pacific Private Equity Tax leader). Ryan’s motivation for starting GreenMount was to create an independent playground for advisory collaboration without rigid team borders or inflexible partnership structures. 

Entering the Start-Up phase, GreenMount found a home at 1 Bligh St, a junction for corporate happenings, and has already expanded to a team of 5, with Lachlan Maguire and Chris Monsted joining the team. Beginning with projects on a range of off-market M&A transactions, restructures, fund structuring, and manager/key person incentives, GreenMount has started on track to becoming the trusted advisor to domestic private equity funds, corporates and sophisticated investors - in other words, the ball is well and truly rolling.

Christmas also came early for GreenMount, as one of our first major public transactions featured in the AFR on Christmas Eve. We were proud to support our client Next Capital on the acquisition of Infratil’s NZ Bus business. The perks of our model allowed us to efficiently meet our client’s needs, by providing our own expertise and collaborating efficiently with other service providers to ensure seamless delivery of a range of talent. 

Other notable public transactions of 2018 for GreenMount, included assisting the vendors of  Serraview on the disposal of their business, the vendors of Legune Station with their post-completion distribution of funds, and separately the fund structuring for a new domestic Litigation Funding business.

Entering 2019, GreenMount is looking forward to building on its humble beginnings by continuing to serve and expand in our Australian and New Zealand markets. If you are interested in talking to us about our unique approach to supporting your transactions (high-end experience with genuine flexibility), we’d love to hear from you - contact us here.
