experience only the best in corporate and capital advisory

Newport Capital is Australia's largest and longest-established M&A corporate advisory firm focused on Technology, New Media and Telecommunications


We pride ourselves on our professionalism, honesty and reputation. We build longstanding trusting relationships that drive referrals and repeat business. We will always be ‘straight up’ in our conversations so everyone knows exactly where they stand.


We never give up. We take on challenging tasks and leave no stone unturned in service of exceeding our clients’ expectations. We apply lateral thought, deep research and domain expertise to find the best possible solution.


We bring transparency, practicality and (sometimes) humor to complex business transactions. We have walked this tightrope many times and have a formula for success. We always work in close partnership with our clients but do the ‘heavy lifting’ on their behalf.

High levels of ingenuity – “creative intelligence” – to provide innovative but practical advice to clients on buy-side, sell-side, IPOs and capital raise advisory engagements.

A team with deep knowledge, expertise and high level management experience in the TMT sector. We understand the issues and challenges faced by owners and managers.

A trusted and respected brand with a track record of success in completing 200+ TMT sector transactions over 26 years and an unblemished Australian Financial Services License.
