Ocean Wall was established in 2019, by Nick Lawson and Ian Ross, to provide a traditional, trustworthy and comprehensive advisory business for the very best in class managers and companies involved in sectors or industries where we have conviction on the underlying economics. 

Ocean Wall has two distinct businesses – Corporate Advisory and Investments.

Our Corporate Advisory business represents a portfolio of companies within sectors we have identified as being underpinned by fundamentally strong trends which are backed up by strong in-house research. We look to advise these select companies on matters of corporate finance, M&A, corporate governance, investor relations, roadshows and communications. We identify the best possible opportunities for deals and asset raising aiming to design and deliver tailored transaction structures based on our client’s objectives. To deliver this we have a close network of Institutional, Family Office and UHNW investors who provide stable, long-term capital to the right opportunities.

In our Investments business we take a long-term strategic view. We partner with a variety of funds (hedge and venture capital), that are intellectually curious and can exploit opportunities across the capital structure with a repeatable investment style. Our experience within the AIFM and UCITS world means that we are able to advise managers on all aspects of the process from initial structuring through to pricing and investor targeting. In many cases we will continue to fulfil an official role as the Investor Relations contact and so will be the allocator’s first port of call when they have any queries regarding the past performance and future direction of their investment. We also assist funds with the structuring of more niche carve-outs, managed accounts and SPVs. Our aim is to go further than our peers in developing close relationships with allocators to establish their exact investment criteria and thus present to them only suitable, well-researched and high-quality investment opportunities.

We look to identify value using deep, fundamental, sector research and by hiring seasoned professionals from tier one firms.
