Who is Prism Corporate Broking?

Prism Corporate Broking is an award-winning corporate finance and business broker boutique that specialises in Buying and Selling Technology Businesses. We advise clients on every aspect of mergers and acquisitions from essential pre-sale advice or acquisition preparation through to successful deal completion.

Why choose Prism?

Our approach is refreshingly different and very successful.

We are technology sector M&A advisors, predominantly working with UK clients but often seeking overseas buyers. Our knowledge of the tech market and our extensive contacts ensures we can identify and engage with targets looking to acquire or sell. Our dedicated and specialist advisor team tailors each assignment to suit your individual businesses and more importantly, your personal objectives. All assignments are Director-led (not delegated) and our highly contingent fee model incentivises success.

Working with us

In order to achieve greatest impact we would encourage you to contact us at an early stage. This will allow us the greatest scope to advise you on sale or acquisition options, readiness, and ensure you are in the greatest shape to achieve your strategic goals.

Our aim is to ensure you make the right decisions at the right time. Typically, for business sales, we work on transactions involving technology businesses within a £1m to £30m turnover range (though the vendor or acquirer can be substantially larger than this).

There are no surprises with Prism, when you meet us you will hopefully realise that our approach is different and highly personal. With aligned goals we work towards achieving them, keeping you up-to-date on progress every step of the way.  It is our personal approach combined with years of experience that makes Prism so appreciated by our clients.

Strong business ethics

We are not volume players; this enables us to deliver a highly personalised service, uniquely tailored towards individual needs and objectives. Our business ethic is strong, trusted, honest and open — telling you what you need to know, not just what we think you might want to hear.

Prism is authorised and regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA); therefore we can also advise on minority investments/divestments.
