What's in a name?

AVONHURST is a portmanteau name, taking inspiration from the root terms for river and sandbank. These subjects together create a marriage of opposing elemental forces. One dynamic, one static. A beginning and an end. The fleeting and the permanent. At the heart of this idea is flow. The concept of flow is embedded in the world of finance. Capital flows through investments, trade and business production from place to place, creating markets and defining commercial outcomes. Deal flow can define pace in the same way that cash flow can define stability. Flow suggests a continuous progression, positive motion, an abundance. A dominant course of successive events or ideas. It could be relentless in its course, ever-active and mercifully free of impediment. For all its deliberate intent, the flow of conversation can remain easy and intuitive. In positive psychology, flow is the mental state of operation in which a person performing an activity is fully immersed in a feeling of energised focus, full involvement, and enjoyment in the process of the activity. The merging of action and awareness, where one’s experience of an activity is intrinsically rewarding. As an advisory business focused exclusively on sophisticated capital, we provide peerless legal and commercial advice for some of the world’s most discerning funds. Our relationships are unrivalled and we work hard to make sure people will always take our call. When you partner with us, you access a powerful network of market-makers. Leading experts, no barriers.
