At Arifeen & Co we are fully aware of the problems and opportunities businesses face. However, we also recognise that experience and specialist skills are not enough. It is only through a clear understanding of client’s business and their long-term objectives that we can provide flexible and practical advice.
Mergers, acquisition and disposals
Steady organic growth, though commendable, is occasionally not enough. Market forces often dictate that a faster expansion strategy needs to be pursued. Whether entering a new market, consolidating your existing position, investing surplus profits or looking to sell, Arifeen & Co can help.
The starting point is to develop an appropriate strategy before undertaking a meticulous search for appropriate targets

Introducing new capital into an organisation is often the catalyst for radical improvements and change. Whether it is for business acquisition, purchasing assets or additional working capital there are a number of finance options available to you. We never underestimate the magnitude of the decision to reinvest in a business, which is why we assign our specialist department to each individual case.
Arifeen & Co has built long-standing relationships with an established network of institutions. We can help prepare business plans before introducing you to the most suitable institution, giving you access to finance on the best terms. If necessary during the course of your business dealings we will negotiate on your behalf, cutting through the seemingly endless red tape.
At Arifeen & Co we operate on the basis that prevention is the best cure. Insolvency and liquidation are two words that send a shudder down every entrepreneur’s spine. This dramatic and final turn of events is not the inevitable outcome for all ailing businesses.
In the majority of cases where a struggling business is saved, time has been a crucial factor. The sooner problems are identified and addressed the sooner the appropriate financial and management resources can be installed to achieve a turnaround. If you think there may be a problem there probably is.
