Andrew Henton

Finance Advisor

Andrew qualified as a prize winning Chartered Accountant with PricewaterhouseCoopers in London, where he specialised as a corporate tax adviser. Post qualification he moved HSBC Investment Bank to work as a corporate financier advising companies on mergers and acquisitions and capital raisings (including stock market flotations and secondary share issues). Frustrated at having to walk away from companies at the completion of a transaction, he subsequently joined the Baring English Growth Fund (“BEGF”) as a Partner. Sponsored by Baring Private Equity Partners, BEGF was a mid-market venture capital fund investing in privately owned high growth UK businesses.

Having spent ten years working in the City Andrew joined Close Brothers Group plc in 2001 in a principal investment role, supporting and reporting to the main board executive directors. In 2002 he was relocated to Guernsey to energise and integrate a series of acquisitions made offshore between 1999 and 2001. As Managing Director, he led the process by which 11 discrete companies in three jurisdictions were brought together to form Close Private Bank, delivering in the process a significant profits turnaround.

Following the acquisition of Close’s offshore operations by Kleinwort Benson, Andrew left that firm at the end of 2011 in order to pursue his ambition to work with and help develop high growth private companies. He was a founder of Grenadier Partners in 2014, and continues to act as an independent director on the boards of various listed funds and financial services companies. Andrew joined the 3e Advisory Board in March 2015.
