Experienced People: our professionals concentrate on solving complex financial energy problems and executing specialized investment strategies. We strive to maintain and enhance our base of highly talented professionals and pride ourselves on being able to offer clients more senior-level attention than may be available elsewhere.
Independence: we are an independent firm, free of many of the conflicts that can arise at larger financial institutions as a result of their varied sales, trading, underwriting, research and lending activities. We believe that recent instances of perceived or actual conflicts of interest, and a desire to avoid any potential future conflicts, have increased the demand by managements and boards of directors for trusted, unbiased advice from professionals whose main product is advice.
Reputation: our firm has a name with over 10 years of history. We are focussed on providing world-class professional advice in complex strategic energy and finance assignments, utilizing both our global capabilities and deeply rooted, local know-how.
Focus: for us there is only one primary business: Financial and Energy Advisory and Management Services rather than a broad range of financial services. We believe this focus has helped, and will continue to help us, attract clients and recruit professionals who want to work in a firm where these activities are the central focus.
Global Presence with Local Relationships: we believe that linking our talented indigenous professionals, deep local roots and financial energy expertise across offices enables us to be a global firm while maintaining a local identity. This approach enables us to build close, local relationships with our clients and to develop insight into both local and international commercial, economic and political issues affecting their businesses. We do not regard any single jurisdiction as our home country.
The core of the success of DGW is its simple business model of Financial Energy Advisory Services with a focus on excellence, intellectual rigor, integrity and creativity. The firm provides premium service to its clients and an environment that attracts and breeds top talent. DGW is committed to encourage and support the success and sustainable growth of its clients.
Founded in Ysbrechtum in 2004, from the start DGW realised a steady growth and became solely focussed on financial and management services.
