Oakstone’s corporate and strategic advisory is the cornerstone of the firm.
The strength of the advisory practice is founded upon the deep diverse experience of its leadership, where accomplishments have been realised across public, corporate and business life. At the core of Oakstone’s advisory platform is a success mindset engendered by the leadership where a dynamic entrepreneurial culture provide unique commercial solutions that differentiate it from its more rigid and reactive institutional competitors.
Oakstone’s growing private equity arm builds upon and compliments its corporate advisory offering through the origination of high quality, high growth investment opportunities across both the developed and developing world.
With a core focus on impact investing and sustainability, Oakstone leads these investments by partnering with a range of private and institutional investors, major corporations, investment banks and governments to deliver upon its commitments.
Oakstone Partners focuses on global DCM origination through independently advising debt issuers on the optimal funding strategy in both private and public markets.
In addition to having a joint venture with Raiffeisen Switzerland, the third largest bank in Switzerland with the largest retail presence and a prestigious fixed income franchise, Oakstone benefits from having strong relationships with numerous global investment banks that allow it to advise across all markets, geographies and currencies.
Oakstone also partners with a number of banks and broker-dealers to originate and execute high yield debt issuances. This provides suitable SMEs and listed companies in emerging countries with an additional, cost efficient funding alternative via a debut into capital markets, thereby supporting their global growth ambitions.
As a core function of Oakstone’s commitment to sustainability, we work with issuers and fixed income investors to bring them together in the green and social impact bond market. This rapidly growing sector provides an increasingly attractive funding platform for those issuers committed to sustainable initiatives.
The Oakstone Partners’ leadership has decades of cross border transactional experience stretching across all four corners of the globe. We are focused on strategic planning with organisations to how best engage with new and emerging markets. We work closely in an advisory role with governments on practical steps to ensure that foreign (direct) investment is attractive and practical for potential investors.
Whether representing clients’ interests in sophisticated developed markets or in emerging frontier geographies, Oakstone can be relied upon to have the necessary in-house expertise and, more importantly, the on-ground network, to effectively deliver bespoke practical results.
Oakstone partners with a number of organisations through the establishment of an International Investment Advisory Board. In these instances, Oakstone selects premier local firms to partner with in formulating and implementing a range of strategic initiatives, allowing for the IIAB to reflect comprehensive domestic expertise, and thus enabling Oakstone to focus on a macro cross border strategy.
Through constructing and chairing an IIAB, Oakstone creates a powerful ecosystem that focuses and promotes the global needs of clients.
Spearheaded personally by our Chairwoman, Baroness Verma, and as part of Oakstone’s core belief that true diversity and full inclusion in the workplace is, and must be, achievable, we strive to advise and mentor organisations to address any imbalances that they may have in a sensitive and pragmatic manner.
Corporate diversity and inclusion are at the forefront of global media discussions currently, therefore making it imperative that firms that value not only their workforce, but also their public profile, must take firm and positive steps in this regard.
Oakstone Partners, led by Baroness Verma, a globally renowned champion for inclusion and equality, is perfectly positioned to advise organisations in this field.
Oakstone Partners is a boutique corporate advisory firm with a truly global focus and passion for sustainable value creation.
Both a principle and principal led firm, Oakstone’s innovative entrepreneurial strategic DNA set it apart from its traditional institutional competitors.
Stemming from the diverse and considerable experience of its leadership and their international footprint, Oakstone consistently delivers a ‘win-win’ result for all. While the needs and objectives of our clients and partners often vary, they each share one commonality — they all trust Oakstone Partners to perform; not only to advise, but, more importantly, to execute.
