BDO has advised the shareholders on the sale of LDC-backed Capital Economics to Phoenix Equity Partners.

Founded by Roger Bootle in 1999, Capital Economics is one of the leading independent economic research companies in the world. Their team of over 60 experienced economists provide award-winning macroeconomic, financial market and sectoral analysis, forecasts and consultancy from offices in London, New York, Toronto, Sydney and Singapore.

BDO managed an extremely efficient process, working closely with the business and shareholders to ensure they achieved maximum value, as well as the right partner for the next phase of the businesses lifecycle. 

"The BDO team provided excellent support in the short and sharp process for the sale of Capital Economics.  Their understanding of the burden placed on a small finance team in an accelerated process with multiple stakeholders was hugely appreciated, as was their responsiveness and expertise in alleviating that burden.  Their proactive approach and excellent communication allowed us to satisfy the multiple demands whist still running the business."

Mark Harris, CFO, Capital Economics
