Gordon Brothers and Ritchie Bros have created a formal joint venture, the Gordon Brothers & Ritchie Bros Alliance will offer asset advisory services to the insolvency and restructuring market in Australia and South East Asia.

The Alliance will work with administrators, creditors, receivers, bankers and financiers to any businesses in distress.

Clients will be offered a global reach and extended leverage the Alliance can offer to provide cash-backed, guaranteed outcomes.
