NOUV has announced its appointment of “seasoned business financial consultant” Luke Cann as Head of its corporate finance arm 36N Capital, as it celebrates the fifth anniversary since the service was set up.
NOUV established 36N Capital in September of 2016, as a boutique broker dealer firm specialising in capital raising, mergers & acquisitions and advisory services.
Since then, it has positioned itself as a leader in the field, managing a combined net worth in excess of $250 million (€216.08 million) worth of angel investment, staged round funding, M&A activities, and emerging venture-based private placement transactions.
The appointment of Mr Cann comes as part of the setting up of the service’s new transaction advisory team.
He commented: “Our work is to provide access to early-stage, interim- and growth-round funding, predominantly in property markets, shipping, financial, gaming and eCommerce, together with M&A brokerage for more mature enterprises."
Additionally, he explained that businesses use the company not only because they trust its “good judgement,” but because they know its strategic consultancy goes beyond business deals, and is based on “mutual trust, understanding and a developed close relationship.”
Addressing his position at the company, he said: “We are proud to be a part of NOUV and we are now looking forward to achieving more important milestones together.”
The feeling is reciprocated by NOUV, and its Managing Partner Mark Aquilina said: “We are proud to have Luke Cann and his team driving 36N Capital.”
He explained that while having a proper structure in the way operations are conducted is “very important” to consultancy in strategic corporate finance, even more important is having operations managed by someone who is “utterly trusted in the sector.”
Mr Cann clearly seems to fit the bill.
