Introduction to The Guthrie Group

The Guthrie Group is a leading, independent consultancy firm, focused on the initiation, facilitation and completion of transactions.

The Guthrie Group (‘TGG’) is a UK- and Asia-based merchant banking and investment group with particular focus on making and actively managing direct investments in Europe and Asia, both as principal and on behalf of selected co-investors. We seek to acquire equity stakes in companies with growth prospects, usually in the form of pre-IPO funding, with a view to assisting them with their continued development managerially and strategically and ultimately securing a realization of our investment through floatation or sale.

The precepts described …. are straight forward, yet very powerful. Daniel S. Peña, has put into simple words how he achieved success at the highest level starting with nothing more than a dream and the passion to succeed. I strongly recommend for …. those who have a dream, little or no capital, and desire a road map to build a significant net worth and achieve the life of a high performance person.

…. this isn't theory, because he gives you real examples from his life and those that he has coached and mentored. Dan has operated in the same real world you do every day and succeeded against all odds. But more importantly, countless devotees have used successfully and achieved their dreams and goals!
