Regent Evolution is a leading mid-market corporate finance and consulting practice with a unique blend of strategic advice and transaction services.


We work with owners, entrepreneurs and management teams who are looking to prepare for a full or partial exit, accelerate their growth organically or by acquisition , and who want to optimise future profits. We have developed a unique consulting product, the Equity Acceleration Plan (EAP) which enables companies to maximise their business value.

Our team is composed of managers, CEOs and entrepreneurs whose experience in business is complemented by a range of specialist skills in corporate finance, business sales and management consultancy.

We combine this hands-on experience of what it means to own and run a business with a ground-breaking approach to managing the process of maximising equity value for middle market business owners.

Our approach puts the aspirations and concerns of our clients at the heart of our process.
