Smith & Williamson adds to corporate finance team

SMITH & WILLIAMSON has added Jim Clark and Philip Marsden, of Marsden Clark Corporate Finance Limited, to their corporate finance team.

Brian Livingston, head of M&A at Smith & Williamson Corporate Finance, said: “We have known both Jim and Philip for many years.  They are veterans of numerous M&A transactions and have an excellent cultural fit with Smith & Williamson. They are service driven, create long-term relationships and give independent advice focussed on the needs of the client.”

Jim Clark has been appointed as a director and Philip Marsden as a consultant, based at Smith & Williamson’s Moorgate office in London. They have over 50 years of transaction experience between them.

Jim Clark said: “The team shares the same values as Marsden Clark with regard to client service and focus.  Smith & Williamson’s Corporate Finance practice is also part of M&A International Inc., an independent alliance of specialist merger and acquisition firms. We will continue to offer the same personal service for merger and acquisition transactions, as before, but with the wider resources and international connections of Smith & Williamson.”

Before setting up Marsden Clark, Clark worked with Marsden at a small-cap advisory firm.  Prior to this Clark worked at HSBC Investment Bank, KPMG Transaction Services and Ernst & Young Entrepreneurial Services.  Marsden is a former director of 3i Group plc’s main operating company.

Earlier this year, Russell Cooke also joined Smith & Williamson’s Corporate Finance team as a director.
