Private Equity Funded

The partners and wider team at DRG have a wide network of contacts within private equity, ranging from angels to institutional investors. Whatever stage your business is at we will be able to introduce you to sources of equity investment.

In the Retail and consumer sector specifically, we partner with True the specialist retail and consumer investor working closely with both True itself and many of their portfolio companies.

Our client base includes many companies with Angel, Venture Capital and Private Equity investment so we are well versed in advising on and implementing the process of obtaining external equity investment and thereafter the ongoing requirements of external investors.

Examples of our private equity backed clients

Existing investors Balderton and Highland Europe also participated.”

"My company has used DRG for a number of years. They are proactive and efficient with all aspects of their work. They keep on top of our tax and accounting requirements, and help with the development of our business strategy.

We view DRG as a key supplier and crucially a partner and would highly recommend the firm – in particular to other fast growing businesses."

David Folkman, Director

"I’ve worked with a number of accountants over the years and have never found another company who offers the same level of care, support and professionalism. They’re always on hand to offer advice and guidance, above and beyond the service that I pay for. I would recommend them wholeheartedly."

Joe Hill, Director

"Very supportive and friendly company from day one."

Outdoor Academy

"I have always worked as an employee so when I decided to set up my own business, I did not know where to start. DRG took the time to explain how working as a sole trader would be more beneficial to me setting up a limited company (which I had always thought was a requirement for running a business). They gave me practical advice on the records I need to keep as well as general guidance on setting up my business and helped me claim a large tax refund after my first year of trading."

Sole Trader

"I have been a client through a number of different ventures with DRG since 2007. They have proved the benefits of a local firm with Big 4 experience in providing sound business and tax advice by being accessible, having in-depth knowledge of my business and able to form good working relationships at different levels with me and my staff. We also enjoy the benefit of their excellent accountancy and payroll services. I couldn’t recommend them more highly."

Paul Dunn-Sims, Halcyon Home Care

"I have been extremely impressed with the service level and attention to my business."

Sherwood Event Services

Design & Technical Management

"We have used DRG since our incorporation. They have supported our development providing sound business advice on top of our accounting requirements.

They are proactive and helpful in responding to queries and I would recommend them to any prospective client."
