BlackArch professionals bring significant transaction experience to consumer and retail companies. We track the trends and the challenges that are unique to consumer and retail clients in a dynamic and constantly evolving market.
Consumer and retail companies face constant challenges from new entrants, disruptive technologies and changing ways of acquiring customers and getting products to them. Specialized product and service offerings can build loyalty and profit margins at the potential cost of high customer and product concentration; at the same time, companies that pursue a mass retail strategy face severe price and margin pressures.
