Our story

Who we are

We are an independent boutique financial advisor supporting our clients in their milestone decisions from scale-up over growth (both local and international), M&A and exit.

Our clients are mainly Belgium anchored scale-ups, family businesses, corporates and private equity firms.

We position ourselves as a financial advisor using a customer-centric approach. LDS Advisory creates pragmatic solutions turning issues into opportunities and giving you comfort on your important business decisions. Where relevant, our solutions will be provided in an integrated way banking on other strategic, operational, tax and legal advisors.

We are involved, pragmatic
and provide you with a clear opinion

Our quality and passion are conditional to all we do, proven by our professional track record and passion for enterpreneurship. LDS Advisory differentiates by honoring the following guiding principles in its way of working:

Involved

We are there for the long run and invest in long term relationships.
We believe client proximity and centricity are essential to high quality and delivering added value. We put you at the core of our organisation through our high responsiveness and senior involvement in all advice we provide.

Pragmatic

In specific cases, such as valuations for fiscal purposes, model audits and due diligence analyses, a sufficiently detailed report is recommended.
However, in many cases you simply need an advisor who can respond to your issues or questions in a smart, tailored and pragmatic way and
where the focus is on the quality of the analysis and advice, and not necessarily on producing a lengthy document.
We aim to be pragmatic in all we do, Always balancing added value and cost to you.

With opinion

We believe that advisory goes beyond expertise. Ensuring a correct analysis is simply normal and the basis of our advice. However, it is through our opinion that we add value.
We are convinced that having an opinion and sharing it respectfully is fundamental for our clients.
