About Us

The value of exchanges between Italy and the United Kingdom testifies to the importance and strength of the historical relations between the two countries.

(Just read the “Department for International Trade” (UK) site or even the “ICE – Italian Trade Agency” site)

Connect Group is an independent corporate finance advisory firm and club deal arranger engaged assistance and consultancy services to institutional and HNWI (high net-worth individual) international clients throughout the investment process in manufacturing companies, in Great Britain and Italy.

How we work

A local professional advisory service is crucial.

Throughout our extended experience in Investments, we have developed a broad network of key specialists across the “share deal” chain (asset finders, notaries, bankers) and acquired the know-how to identify, price, bid and close deals.

Our philosophy is to establish a personal and reliable service with local presence and to coordinate with first class experts and ensure every step of the investment is examined and implemented with impeccable methodology.

Our services

We are the ideal link between ideas and money.

There is no company or situation that is difficult or in difficulty but there are only opportunities that we help to seize.

Track-record

After a long experience in the equity investment sector (Milan Stock Exchange 1981-2008), since 2009 I have dedicated myself to investments in the real economy and to the financial restructuring of small and medium-sized enterprises.

I have supported many Entrepreneurs in relaunching their businesses and, in the most difficult situations, we have still avoided bankruptcy.
