Ways we can help
Aspects of Exit Strategies
Whether you have a specific timescale in mind for your business or it represents a lifetime commitment, there is likely to come a time when you will want to move on. Without a robust exit plan* in place, you may not reap the full rewards you deserve and could risk leaving the business in less than great shape, but with our help, you’ll be ready when the time is right – and, crucially, so will the business.
*Please note that advice with regard to exit strategy planning may involve the referral to a service that is separate and distinct to those offered by St. James’s Place.
