Chris Coley is a Managing Director at FTI Consulting and is based in London. He is a member of the Turnaround & Restructuring practice. Mr. Coley has over 13 years of financial and business advisory experience, and specialises in providing restructuring, turnaround and business transformation advice to lenders, debtors and other stakeholders.

Mr. Coley’s experience has focused on business reviews, liquidity management, contingency planning and cross-border formal insolvency assignments across a wide range of industries, including financial services, media, telecommunications and retail. 

Mr. Coley’s advisory experience includes conducting an independent business review (IBR) and acting as the financial advisor to the RCF and hedge lenders of South Africa’s largest non-food retailer.  He also  conducted an IBR and was the financial advisor to the syndicated lenders of a leading UK wholesaler. He conducted financial due diligence of a market-leading manufacturer of aluminium formwork construction systems across Asia Pacific, the Middle East and North Africa on behalf of a proposed investor and conducted due diligence of a Singapore-based transport and logistics company on behalf of a potential acquirer.

Mr. Coley’s formal recovery work includes being engaged by the Chapter 11 trustee of MF Global, following the global bankruptcy event, to provide advice on the UK and rest-of-the-world estates and strategies to recover assets for the U.S. holding company. After the implementation of a restructuring plan, he advised the newly-appointed board of directors in respect to assets remaining to be realised in the UK, Singapore, Hong Kong and Taiwan. He was also engaged by Reader’s Digest to perform a review of all overseas operations, including a number of entities across Europe, Asia and South America, and prepare a fully consolidated liquidation model under various scenarios to provide an overview of realisations to the U.S. holding company prior to Chapter 11 filing.

Prior to joining FTI Consulting, Mr. Coley worked within the Corporate Restructuring practice of EY. He recently completed a two-year secondment to FTI Consulting’s Singapore office, where he was involved in a number of non-formal advisory and formal insolvency engagements across Southeast Asia.
