During the ICO boom we shared a feeling that decentralisation was going to transform everything...
... but, of course, change rarely takes place overnight.
It is often said that when new innovations arise, there is a tendency to over estimate the change that will occur in the short term and under estimate the change that will occur in the long term.

Whilst many digital asset issuers and advisors have perished in the short-sighted pursuit of hype, Saxon Advisors has maintained a long term view from day one.

The company was founded in 2018 by James Sherborne and Ultan Miller to provide corporate finance advice to companies that had conducted a token sale.
