WK Corporate Finance win top award

One of Wilkins Kennedy’s star performers has been recognised at a regional awards ceremony following a bumper year for the firm’s corporate finance department.

Daniel Jonas, who has risen through the ranks to Associate Director since joining the corporate finance team in 2013, has been awarded Emerging Dealmaker of the Year at Insider’s South East Dealmakers Awards.

He fought off stiff competition from professionals at four other accountancy firms to land the award, with judges stating they were impressed with his commitment and perseverance to overcome obstacles and complete deals.

Over the past year, Daniel, who is based at Wilkins Kennedy’s London office on King William Street, has advised on over 15 completed transactions, the majority being Private Equity led. Deal highlights include advising Eikon Group, an innovative post production company used by major Hollywood film studios, on its investment from YFM Equity Partners and advising Munnypot, a unique robotic advice investment platform, on its investment from Livingbridge (funds now managed by Gresham House plc).

Daniel said: “It has been another exceptional year for WK’s corporate finance department, and this award is a reflection of the hard work and determination of the entire team.

“The UK Private Equity market continues to be buoyant despite the uncertainties surrounding Brexit and we are expecting an equally active 2019.

“Awards like this reinforce our expertise as a firm, and this sets us up nicely to continue our growth in the future.”
