We look for opportunities to build new revenue streams and enter new markets; we help you review your portfolio, business unit or institutional strategy; we screen and evaluate acquisitions.

Operations and implementation

We help you design new organisations and services. Our work covers service design, performance improvement, digital transformation, business case development and cost reduction.


We screen for acquisitions and evaluate them for private equity firms and companies, conducting commercial due diligence in the UK and abroad.

“I’ve read countless reports on the K12 education market but what struck me about Cairneagle’s research was the maturity of their interpretation of the macro-economic and industry trends and the independence of their thinking. They push beyond common collective views and deliver true strategic insight”

“Cairneagle went above and beyond the brief to ensure the full opportunity for Babington would be recognised, understood and then exploited by the eventual buyer. This work was approached creatively and the final report was excellent value for money for the shareholders.”
