DAC Beachcroft goes for New York, New York

And so the firm has launched a representative office in the city that doesn’t sleep, keen to be king of the hill and top of the heap (quite the challenge).

The firm said the office would support its international network, which has expanded rapidly across Latin America since the merger between legacy Beachcroft and legacy Davies Arnold Cooper. Helping those little town blues melt away, so the song says.

Of course the song doesn’t mention how expensive New York is. The latest set of LLP accountsfiled with Companies House show another batch of firms – DAC included – making changes to their borrowings to finance continued investment.

But if DAC can make it there, maybe it’ll make it anywhere.
