Mensura was founded with a philosophy of “measured risk” (Latin: Mensura Sortis) that recognizes that many variables impact risk measurement, including human factors, the most difficult to quantify. This is most evident in the M&A world, where humans drive decisions and emotions are heightened. Mensura’s mandate is to reduce transactional risk by providing hands-on management of all aspects of a transaction and a focus on the goals of its clients, business owners. The resulting Mensura process enables our clients to realize transformational wealth, as well as other non-financial personal and other value considerations.
