Albacore is a transaction advisory and financial restructuring boutique founded in 2014 by Greg McPartlin and Matej Reisman who together have over 50 years of combined advisory experience. The word boutique is defined as a small company that offers highly specialised services or products. For us this means that we do not strive to be everything to everyone but rather focus on our strengths: the committed active involvement of our senior staff on every project, our financial modelling expertise and our goal oriented mindset.
We typically work with companies that have an enterprise value between €5m to €300m and have specialised sector expertise in telecommunications, retail, manufacturing and IT.
clear and open communication can only happen if we willingly enter into a dialogue, listen to each other, and try to understand the perspectives of all parties
we seek to attract people with the best skills for the job, invest in their development, and nurture a work environment that imbues the highest levels of quality and client service
our corporate culture focuses on achieving consistently high standards of thought, action and communication
measure us by what we do, not by what we say we will do
We will work in partnership with you to identify the solution that meets your organisation’s goals.
We tailor our solutions to fit your organisation’s culture, budget and way of doing business. This includes giving you options about the scope of our role and letting you decide how much or how little you want to involve us.
We’ll not only work side-by-side with you to deliver the solutions your seeking, but we’ll provide advice, resources and training so that you can sustain your results long after our consulting engagement has ended.
We hold ourselves to high standards of performance and service and welcome your feedback about the quality of our work.

He has advised on many complex and high-profile assignments across a range of sectors including privatisations, take-privates, financial restructurings, refinancings and MBOs.

The combination of financial and management consulting experience gives him the ability to gain a deep understanding of clients’ businesses and therefore to extract the maximum value from every transaction.
Matej is a graduate of the European Business School in London with a major in finance.
