“Spectrum were the perfect partner for Virgin Wines and we couldn’t have achieved our management buy-out without them. From the very start, right through to completion, they guided us through every aspect of the process, introduced us to the right investment partners and were calm, supportive and professional. We also developed great relationships with the team personally, meaning we had a lot of fun as well as working incredibly hard to achieve the outcome we all desired. I wouldn’t hesitate in recommending Spectrum to anyone who wants a top corporate finance team to help and support them through any acquisition process.” Jay Wright, CEO, Virgin Wines
