Ian Barton

Partner - Corporate Finance

I lead Quantuma’s corporate finance team alongside Mark Lucas, focussing on advising shareholders on their M&A plans, sourcing funding and planning shareholder restructuring.

Whether the shareholder objective is investing for growth or planning their exit, I help my clients through the complexities of a transaction to deliver shareholder value.

I specialise in advising mid-market business owner managers and private equity investors as well as large corporates. Working with those clients I have been leading successful transactions for over 20 years.

I was a partner at Deloitte for many years leading their corporate finance business in the South East, before joining HMT where I re-established their lead advisory business leading several of the most notable local transactions. I was awarded Corporate Financier of the Year in 2014 and Dealmaker of the Year in 2016 at the Thames Valley Deal Awards.

Memberships / Qualifications:

A qualified Chartered Accountant (ACA) and holder of the CF qualification from the ICAEW

Specialist expertise:

As a corporate financier, I support businesses across all sectors with M&A, and finance raising, particularly from private equity.

About Me:

Married with 2 daughters who are rapidly becoming teenagers, I regularly find myself watching them playing sport or driving them to or from it.
A keen Manchester City fan since the dark days of the early 1980’s I’ve earned the right to a bit of glory hunting, but will happily enjoy most sports.
My claim to fame was coming runner up on a TV quiz in the mid 2000’s, though neither fame nor fortune followed sadly!
