Helping You Allocate Scarce Resources To Achieve Goals

We work with clients to make complex, high-stakes decisions that have a direct impact on sales, profitability, brand equity and customer satisfaction. We quantify the impact of these decisions, and provide the evidence needed to allocate resources to maximum effect.


Frequently businesses do not fully understand why their customers use them, how their customer base segments, and which segments are the most profitable. Through customer interviews, detailed surveys, interrogation of company financial data and advanced analytics, we help businesses to see where they add value to their customers, and recommend ways to retain those that are most profitable.


Maximising shareholder value is the fundamental challenge for any Chief Executive. Fairgrove identifies revenue generation, cost reduction and share gain opportunities to improve client returns at corporate, company and business unit level. We work with clients to assess the relative attractiveness of various possible growth strategies, and develop plans to ensure effective implementation.


Fairgrove helps clients to assess the business case for entering new markets, and launching new products and services. This may be for a mature business that appears to have reached a natural ceiling of market share, or for a younger company, breaking ground in a sector where market data are thin or non-existent. We use a range of research and modelling techniques to quantify the barriers to entry and the available returns on investment.


A sound plan is the essential document for all businesses, irrespective of their stage of life. Fairgrove supports Chief Executives and their teams to develop and present their business plans, in order to help raise investment to support strategy.


Choosing the right route to market, fostering channel loyalty and allocating resources across channels can be an ongoing challenge for businesses operating in dynamic, rapidly-evolving markets. Fairgrove works with clients and their partners to build balanced, efficient and profitable channels, including e-commerce and traditional distribution.


From small, complementary bolt-ons, to major step-change acquisitions, Fairgrove is adept at finding and screening potential targets. We work closely with management teams to establish the acquisition criteria, and use our proprietary evaluation methodology to determine the relative attractiveness of targets on the shortlist. Our expertise in commercial due diligence enables us to support further investigation, if required. Where appropriate, we may also be able to facilitate introductions.
