Zeus is highly regarded in a number of areas, including: Public Markets Advisory, Private Company and Private Equity Advisory, Equity Sales and Research and Family Offices.

Our advisory teams have extensive transactional experience across a broad range of sectors and transaction types, while the Equity Sales team is regarded as one of the leading teams in small/mid cap broking in the UK. In addition, Zeus’s Family Offices team provides access to funding and opportunities from High Net Worth Individuals.

Our approach

From our unique position in the mid-market, Zeus Capital provides clients with truly independent, unbiased advice across a broad range of solutions.

Our rapid growth and success in delivering transactions has been achieved because, unlike many traditional corporate finance or broking models, our approach allows us to:

  • Assist our clients across the lifecycle of their business, from early stage funding to partial and ultimate exit;
  • Simultaneously and seamlessly consider trade sale, private equity and IPO options through a multi-track process without the complexity or additional cost of employing multiple advisors;
  • Create opportunities bridging private and public markets including: IPOs of private equity portfolio companies, private equity backed take-privates, public company “carve-outs” and pre-IPO funding solutions;
  • Zeus Capital is owned by an entrepreneur, which enables us to relate to our clients and add value from a position of experience. It also enables us to invest our own capital in both public and private transactions, backing our clients and our own advice.

Our sectors

Zeus Capital has real insight into a broad range of sectors with a combination of significant transactional experience; the expertise of dedicated sector analysts and specialist sales; and the continuous interaction of our team with companies and investors in these industries.  Moreover, many of our analysts have previously worked in industry and/or have PHDs in their chosen fields.  The list of our key sectors of focus can be found under Research.
