If there is one thing Nicholas Assef believes more than anything, it is that he should be providing every client with the most innovative thinking, as well as the deepest commercial and financial judgment available and that he should also provide clients with clear independent advice. That is why he has poised himself as a shrewd negotiator. It’s also why he has proven himself capable of using strategies and tactics based on “game theory” in the negotiations with which he is involved. His approach has been described as “tenacious” and he applies innovative thinking, deep commercial and financial judgment and clear independent advice to his counsel for every client. He takes this approach because he is fully aware that the clients who choose his firm are looking for something special, and not the typical advice offered by other firms.

You see, Nicholas Assef is the founder of Lincoln Crowne & Company Pty. Limited, which has grown over the years into a quite prestigious investment firm. He is also the Executive Director for the firm and serves as a Senior Analyst. Lincoln Crowne in general and Nicholas Assef in particular are specialists in the Australian and South East Asian markets. Nicholas is someone with a tremendous amount of experience and expertise in many important financial and business areas, including mergers and acquisitions, joint ventures, valuation, growth strategies, shareholder rights, and strategic due diligence.

Over the course of a career that has now stretched to more than 25 years, Nicholas Assef has built up an extensive range of work experience, in the corporate world, the legal profession and even in the academic field. That last part came first, or at least, part of it did. Nicholas Assef considers education to be the foundation for everything, which is why he earned a Post Graduate degree in Valuation with honors from Harvard Business School and then completed a MBA program at the Simon Business School at the University of Rochester in New York. Nicholas Assef has a lot more education that that, but it demonstrates that he likes to make sure he knows what he’s talking about before he gives advice.
