We have worked with the Shareholder’s of SafeGuard for over five years ensuring they were able to maximise value and exit at the right time.

Safeguard was a highly sought after business and is a real testament to Nick Welsh and his team as well as the outgoing Chairman, David Tattersall, alongside BCF Equity Partners.
