Ghafur joined Rothsay in 2019 as a business advisory and tax partner. For over 20 years and as a Chartered Accountant he has specialised in scaling up and succession for family businesses, multinationals, and private wealth clients working in industry as well as Big 4, mid tier and boutique advisory firms. His approach brings clarity and rigour in addressing a broad range of strategic issues relating to scaling up through mergers and acquisitions, international tax treaty impact on cross border activities, capital raising support, strategy design and finance function effectiveness. From a succession perspective, his deep technical and broad industry experience provides a systematic framework in architecting tax effective structures, asset protection, facilitating governance, designing ESOP’s as well as advising on divestment transactions. Ghafur also serves on a number of Not for Profit boards as a way of using his deep experience to give back to the community.
Whether it’s helping clients or his team, Ghafur believes trust is built on intimately understanding each other’s “Why”.
