In an era of disruption, strategy is more important than ever. We offer creative solutions that have helped hundreds of companies across geographies and sectors develop and execute winning strategies. We’ve been a strategy thought leader for nearly five years, and we bring unrivaled capabilities, tools, technologies, and talent to every engagement, augmented by an ecosystem of best-of-breed partners that provide specialized expertise. We’ll help you mobilize for change, navigate uncertainty, and flex as needed, so you achieve sustained and profitable growth.
A great corporate strategy combines five elements: a bold yet realistic ambition, a carefully considered portfolio of assets, smart financial choices, a keen understanding of your “parenting advantages,” and, ultimately, a transformation roadmap that specifies the actions and decisions that will get you where you want to go. We integrate these five elements, paying close attention to the role that finance plays, including access to capital, risk management, building M&A capabilities and more. The result is a clear plan of action to reach your goals, with the ability to flex in response to technological disruptions, changing customer needs and other factors.
We work closely with CFOs and finance leaders to make sure the finance function's priorities are closely aligned with--and help propel--your corporate strategy. We'll help you create a roadmap of key initiatives that produce quick wins and efficiency gains while enhancing the capabilities that support your most strategic activities. Our expert team can help you add more value, reduce costs and operate as a true partner to the business. And our management approach can help you build the skills you need and drive the lasting behavioural and culture changes that make results stick.
In this era of the activist investor we help CFOs tackle another key challenge: our investor management framework addresses all the essential levers that influence the gap between intrinsic and market value, enabling you to:
Systematically uncover investor biases about your company and your industry sector
Target the right investors: those that can truly move the stock, and be influenced
Tailor the totality of your communication to these investors and adjust your communication mix to reflect the unique circumstances of your company
Approach investor management activities in the same disciplined way as any critical, cross-functional business process, guided by clear strategies, execution plans, KPIs, and more
Our industry-leading work spans corporate strategy, private-equity investing and related disciplines. With more than 100 projects completed across virtually all industries and geographies we bring unparalleled experience and expertise to every facet of M&A consulting.
We'll work with you to:
Advise on strategy and screening, due diligence, integration, divestitures and separations, joint ventures/alliances, corporate finance, and much more.
Apply a comprehensive set of best-in-class diagnostics, frameworks, proprietary benchmarks and other analytics tools and capabilities to guide target prioritization and screening, integration workflows and other essential elements of successful M&A.
Investor Relations Strategy
Though most companies communicate regularly with investors, a staggering 90% of them don’t systematically link investor relations with strategy teams. This opens the door for communication gaps and inconsistent messaging—both of which impair the equity story and ultimately weaken investor trust. At the same time, many companies don’t carefully segment their investor base, making it difficult to hold on to shareholders and court new ones. Embedding investor relations strategy into your comprehensive corporate strategy protects you from critical blind spots while also helping you attract and retain the investors integral to your success.
It’s a daunting challenge: How do you move forward at speed despite enormous uncertainty? Capital & Centric Consulting provides the answer.

Value Creation Plan
Capital & Centric Consulting is a leader in supporting an activist approach to ownership. We often find that the work we do immediately post-close has the biggest impact, and our numbers tell the story: The mean return of all investments during the first year where Capital & Centric Consulting has been retained is 3.3 times invested capital, well over the industry average of 1.8 times. We assist in post-close activity in three time-tested ways:
Blueprint: Create a value creation plan that defines the full potential of the business and creates a program to capture it—complete with specific initiatives, detailed action plans, assignment of accountability for results and a dashboard of metrics to track operational and financial performance;
Focused initiatives: Identify highest priorities first, such as new product introductions, salesforce productivity and integration of add-on acquisitions; and
Management workshops: Provide a structured, interactive forum for sponsors and managers to develop a value-creation plan.
