Dean Street Advisers was founded in 2012 by Mervyn Metcalf and Graeme Atkinson, two seasoned and experienced investment bankers, with a background in large investment banks including Merrill Lynch and Deutsche Bank.

The ethos of the firm is to provide independent and clear advice, coupled with a creative approach to transactions, both M&A and financing, to deliver successful results for our clients.



At its heart, Dean Street aims to build long-term relationships with an unequivocal focus on our clients’ best interests.

Dean Street aims to provide proprietary and targeted ideas to our clients, coupled with an experienced appraisal of an opportunity. 

We also look to bring a creative flair which often unlocks transactions for our clients.   

If we have concerns about an asset or its suitability for our client, the terms of a deal or the likelihood of a transaction proceeding, we will actively raise those concerns with our client. 

Long-term client relationships are key for us. 

We are sector-agnostic.    

M&A Advisory

The Dean Street team has a strong track record of originating and executing M&A transactions in the UK market, both buy-side and sell-side. 

Dean Street’s deep relationships extend across a wide field of private equity firms along with management teams and experienced operators.  

Capital Raising

Dean Street has specific skills in advising clients across a number of sectors on raising capital (senior debt, mezzanine capital and equity), either as part of an M&A transaction or on a standalone basis.

We offer our clients access to our extensive network of senior lenders, pension and insurance funds, mezzanine providers and equity investors, including family offices with the aim of creating the most suitable capital structure for their needs.
