GK wins Specialist Due Diligence Provider of the Year at Unquote British Private Equity Awards

GK Strategy is delighted to have received the Specialist Due Diligence Provider award at the British Private Equity Awards. We are proud to have had so much support from our clients, and are grateful to everyone who voted for us.

Over the last year, GK has completed 35 mandates across its two core offerings: environmental, social, and governance (ESG) quality and compliance due diligence, and political, policy, and regulatory risk due diligence. The combined value of the transactions on which GK advised in 2018/19 came in at more than £1.04 billion – a 23% increase on the total for 2017/18.

BPE awards GK specialist provider due diligence 2019

Our success over the last year comes following the merger between GK’s due diligence arm, GK Intelligence (GKI), and its strategic communications consultancy, GK Strategy. This brought together the rigorous analysis of GK’s investor services team into its work with strategic communications clients, enabling us to support both investors and management teams from investment to exit, offering strategic advice throughout the investment cycle.

Consequently, what sets us apart is our focus not only on risk mitigation, but on value creation and supporting our clients through the lifetime of an investment. With the UK undergoing enormous political change that shows no sign of abating, GK’s offering has been – and will continue to be – essential in helping investors to address and reduce risk, and create opportunity.
