"A diligent approach to problem solving ensures clients enjoy the best possible outcomes."

The most creative solution in the world counts for nothing if the assumptions it’s based on are inaccurate, or the likely outcome hasn’t been properly modelled.

Working closely with his clients, Hamish’s habit of meticulously considering all the various issues at play leads to well-reasoned, pragmatic solutions.

Hamish has extensive experience providing advice on financial arrangements, both simple and complex.  He has a broad corporate finance skill set, which has been developed through more than 11 years of practical experience in business valuation, transaction and advisory services, infrastructure and capital projects, financial modelling and litigation support.
