Launch of New Corporate Finance Advisory Company

Launch of New Corporate Finance Advisory Company

A new company, providing best-practice independent advice on corporate finance and financial risk management has been launched this week. The company, Taylor Duignan Barry Ltd, brings together a team with wide-ranging expertise in corporate finance, investment banking and treasury risk management. Geoff Taylor was Global Head of Corporate Finance and Treasury for the New Zealand Dairy Board. Pat Duignan was General Manager, Financial Strategy, for Telecom NZ Ltd. Prior to that, Pat was a Director in the Investment Banking Division of CSFB and Treasurer of the New Zealand Debt Management Office. Phil Barry has been working as an independent financial and economic consultant to corporates in the private and public sectors, including Fonterra, Meridian Energy, Telecom NZ and Tranz Rail. Prior to setting up his own business, Phil was a Director at the Treasury and a former Counsellor Economic in New Zealand’s Permanent Delegation to the OECD.

As a combined force they offer extensive experience in financial strategy, investment banking, corporate valuations and financial risk management. Between them, they have managed the largest debt and foreign exchange exposures in New Zealand.

“Our expertise includes a full understanding of the corporate finance, risk management and regulatory issues faced by Australasian enterprises. We see a considerable demand from Boards and CFOs for such advice that is independent of auditing, broking, lending or other associated activities” says Phil Barry.

“As a focused and highly experienced team, we are able to work in partnership with our clients to fully get to grips with the issues they face and provide solutions tailored to their needs.”

“The principals of the team know what it means to be held accountable for outcomes. We are committed to providing the highest quality independent advice and assisting in the execution of transactions based on our expertise in best-practice corporate policies.”
