Our Services

Business Programs

Our carefully curated business programs are designed to support you wherever you are on your business journey, from planning right through to exiting your business. We will guide you through the programs helping you to avoid the pitfalls and ensure we deliver a service to address your personal and business needs.

Planning For Exit

There are several key factors that potential buyers look for in a healthy business and it really pays to address these before thinking of going to market. We will guide you through the process and what to look out for to ensure that your business is in the best possible shape before an exit.

Marketing & Comms Strategy

An effective marketing strategy is essential for the success of any business, whether that’s through a B2B or B2C campaign. At First Tier we understand that one size doesn’t fit all and will give you the advice you need to truly make a success of your marketing strategy.

Fiduciary Service

The loss of a business owner either temporarily or permanently, can have a devastating effect on a business and often cause considerable stress to those left to step in and keep things afloat. We’ve got the experience required to not just ensure the survival, but to drive the success of a business, until new leadership is found.


Nearly every business will require funding at some point in its journey and finding capital at the right time from the right place is vital to a business’s success. Our fundraising team has years of experience working across the entire spectrum from Angel investors and Family Offices to institutional investment.

Non-Exec Services

The role of a non-executive director (NED) is to support the board of a company by providing independent oversight and corporate governance. We can provide qualified, professional NEDs who provide an independent view and add additional skills to bolster your existing executive team.

get out of the way of those who are doing it.”
