Smart investors understand that there are opportunities at each stage of the transaction process to enhance value and minimise risk when buying, managing or divesting businesses and property portfolios. Whether understanding liabilities during purchase, reducing operational and legislative costs, or preparing the portfolio for eventual sale, achieving maximum return on investment needs both a technical and commercial perspective.
