Sergio Cardoso

I am delighted to be a director in our market-leading, cross-discipline technology, media and telecoms (TMT) team. My focus is on dynamic, fast-growing and entrepreneurial private companies, as well as multinational and AIM-listed groups.  Although I am based in the UK, I frequently work in the US, South America and throughout Europe.

In my relationship role, I help businesses with a range of issues including planning for efficient corporate structures, planning for transactions (mainly new equity financing), employee and founder equity participation schemes, group structuring and exit planning.

I am part of Grant Thornton International’s Global audit quality monitoring team, monitoring compliance with professional auditing and accounting standards and Grant Thornton global audit policies.  Promoting the delivery of a consistent, high quality client service worldwide.

Outside of work, I’m a full-time dad to daughter, but when I am not performing my usual taxi service to clubs, parties and soft play I can still be regularly found at Craven Cottage.

Practice:

We believe that today’s world is all about connecting across businesses and industries, between public and private. And we have a track record of making that happen. Working with dynamic growing businesses is in our DNA. We provide advice to more than 40,000 dynamic organisations across the public and private sector, and working with them excites us because we know they help a vibrant economy to thrive.

Working with our clients also means we see the challenges of doing business in a complex and interconnected world first hand. This means we’re in an ideal position to help turn these new realities into opportunities, and to do so in a way which makes a direct contribution to building a stronger society for everyone at the same time.

We are confident that focusing on shaping a vibrant economy is good for our clients, good for the communities they serve and good for our business.

As a Grant Thornton member firm, we are part of a network of over 40,000 people in over 130 countries. In the UK we are led by 185 partners and over 4,500 people under the UK’s first shared enterprise model.
