Regent Evolution is a unique mergers and acquisitions boutique firm offering corporate finance advisory services to a diversified portfolio of high-profile UK and international clients.

Our tailored corporate finance solutions and strategic business advisory and financial consulting services help turn the ordinary into the extraordinary.

Regent Evolution Consulting Services

Regent Evolution is the combination of three firms; two well established, sector specialist, corporate finance boutiques (Regent Partners and Buckingham Corporate Finance) and a unique exit strategy consultancy, Assay Advisors.

Regent was founded in 1989 and Buckingham started trading in 2002. In 2019 the merger of all 3 firms came about. In 2024 Regent Assay further strengthened its company sale offering by partnering with EvolutionCBS EvolutionCBS

In addition to Corporate Finance, Regent Evolution provides consulting services specifically for owners, managers and entrepreneurs who are planning to exit from their business sometime in the near to medium term, which could be anytime between 12months and 5 years hence.

The Regent Evolution offering of Corporate Finance and Pre-exit Consulting creates a unique hybrid offering. This allows its clients to develop a trusted relationship which can be relied and depended on during the journey from planning to eventual exit from their business.


What is a boutique advisory firm?

In a time and attention-starved world, carefully targeted effort and laser-sharp focus on select promising opportunities nurtured over the longer term offers the most effective strategy for achieving uncommon value and realising a good return on investment.

This is the advantage of using the corporate finance advisory services offered by a boutique financial firm. Instead of trying to be all things to all clients all the time, our purview falls within a very specific range of financial transactions, and our talented portfolio managers and investors do what they do in that spectrum really well.

Our offerings address the individual requirements of specific industries, particular market segments and smaller clients that larger firms cannot assist as effectively.

As a ‘boutique’ financial firm providing niche financial transaction services and personalised  investment management, we meet the unique business finance needs of a wide variety of clients—and handle deals of more varied worth than many other firms in the financial advisory services sphere.

What we don’t do: lending, trading or underwriting.

Regent Evolution is your merger and acquisition consulting partner. From strategy phase, to seeking a target business to merge with or acquire, and even the somewhat dreaded due diligence, we’ll get you to a lucrative sale through our business alchemy: you, and us, fusing to create something great.
