History

Over 50 years in the consulting industry, and more than 30 years in Asia

1960's

Early History

McNeill and Partners was established in the early 1960's, first consulting to the automotive industry, later expanding into real estate, information technology, and finance. Over almost 60 years, the partners have built a successful group of enterprises, engaged in private equity and property investment, management consulting along with third party asset and capital management. The group built operations in Australia, New Zealand and Hong Kong, with affiliates based in Switzerland, Mainland China, Singapore, America, Philippines,
and the United Kingdom.

1980's

Expansion

In the mid-1980's, the group successfully extended its Australian operations into IT & Human Resources consulting, winning major consulting and supply assignments from the Australian Government, leading technology companies, and major banks.

1990's

Asia

In the late 1990’s the first McNeill office opened in Asia, advising on industrial, technology, and infrastructure projects. Completed advisory assignments include oil refining, publishing, logistics, and real estate, as well as energy and infrastructure developments.
Several joint ventures were established in China, including with China Development Institute, a leading government consulting group, with 200 professionals engaged in M&A activities throughout China.

2000's

International

At the start of this century, McNeill expanded into management of capital, helping establish the first Chinese municipal equity fund listed on the Hong Kong Stock Exchange, several Cayman Islands private equity funds, and a public equity vehicle based in Cyprus.
Major new clients included The Rockefeller Group, one of the world’s most prestigious real estate developers, AIG, one of the world’s 100 largest companies, and ABN AMRO Bank, a financial institution with 250 years history. McNeill continued to focus on advising clients on major industrial and infrastructure transactions, with an emphasis in Asia.   

2020's

Global

As emerging markets in Asia become more sophisticated and access to capital deepens, McNeill has again strengthened its network, by association with independent industry and financial experts in Europe, Australia, and the America’s, and creating additional resources for our clients. Transactions which were mostly flowing into Asia, now flow in both directions.  To facilitate the growing number of Asian investors seeking access to opportunities in Western markets, McNeill now has partners with language skills in French, Spanish, German, Cantonese, Mandarin, Tagalog, Bahasa Indonesia, and Hindi.  In addition to providing access to institutional funding and strategic partners, McNeill has assisted indirect investors through establishment of several private investment vehicles in Europe, Asia-Pacific, and the USA. 

“Finance is not merely about making money. It's about achieving our deep goals and protecting the fruits of our labor. It's about stewardship and, therefore, about achieving the good society."
