Vedanta also advises on existing hedges clients have as well as restructure options, which can be sources for extra hidden profits for the Banks.

 What our clients say about us.

  • Kam Sanghera

    Prime Site





    “Vedanta Hedging worked tirelessly to achieve a very successful outcome for my Company. Martin Berkeley’s expertise was invaluable and he produced a clear and thorough report on a highly technical matter. He explained everything in a straightforward manner and was very supportive throughout the whole process, from start to finish. Without his ongoing advice and support, including attending key meetings with the bank, I doubt I would have got a successful result. I am extremely grateful to Martin and his team at Vedanta for navigating me through a very difficult time with patience and dedication”.

    "I have received settlement for one of the three mis-sold swaps and your report was, in my view, instrumental in this outcome being achieved. Accordingly, I am very grateful to Abhishek and Martin and thank them again for their support throughout this matter"
  • Conor Cahill

    "Abhishek I would like to express our own and our clients’ gratitude to you for your assistance in this matter – the clients are delighted with the ultimate result which we are convinced would not have been presented to us in the absence of your excellent report and advices."

  • A.M

    Dentist, London

    I came to Vedanta Hedging through a recommendation and was referred to Mr Abishek Sachdev and Mr Martin Berkeley.Mr Berkeley has assisted me from the beginning in setting out my case by making a detailed written statement in support of my mis-selling of the IRHP review through to successfully gaining me full redress.The manner in which the whole process was conducted was extremely professional and efficient. Mr Sachdev and Mr Berkeley are very knowledgeable and extremely helpful in allaying my concerns and guiding me every step of the way to a successful conclusion.


    Highly recommended.

    “We have known Abhishek Sachdev at Vedanta both personally and professionally for a number of years and were aware of the services his Company provided. It was an easy decision to make to request his services  as he was best qualified to help us achieve our goal. The service that he and his team provided, in particular Ms Kinga Broel-Plater, was of a high and professional level and everyone at Vedanta seems to know their subject in depth! From our perspective knowing Abhishek personally was indeed an added bonus and it was clear early on that he knew his stuff inside out.We had dealings with Kinga Broel- Plater and this too was conducted to our satisfaction.We would have no hesitation in recommending Abhishek and his team and would use their services again in the future.”

    “We are very thankful to Mayad and Abhishek for all their assistance and support throughout our £230m refinancing. They have both been an absolute pleasure to deal with and it has been very comforting for us all to know throughout that we have been in the hands of two extremely capable individuals. Their understanding of our requirements as property investors and subsequent report on hedging strategy gave us the comfort we needed to make an informed decision on our derivatives.”

    Vedanta Hedging worked closely with us and our Finance Director to assess the hedging options provided by our Bank for our hotels. We hadn't realised the amount of profit the Bank was making on the hedging. For the first time, we were able to hedge our debt in a cost-effective manner, which has given us great peace of mind. We will always be using their advice for all hedging related matters.
  • Colm Lyons

    Barrister & Mediator
    Abhishek Sachdev is a hugely enthusiastic colleague with a unique ability to make highly complex products clear to clients and colleagues. He has extraordinary knowledge and insight into this area which is invaluable when assessing strategies for clients. Although not a lawyer by profession his insight into the relevant law is impressive and helpful when his expertise is needed in litigation. He is also very approachable and helpful to all who come into contact with him.
  • Kiran Morzeria

    I have referred several of my clients who have borrowings with Banks to Vedanta Hedging. The feedback has always been exceptional, with my clients wishing they had spoken to Vedanta earlier to help them negotiate their hedging costs.

    Abhishek is like the "Masked Magician" revealing the tricks and behind the scenes practices of the banks. Abhishek is able to offer a real insight into how banks are pricing, structuring and selling deals - all is not always as it seems! The cost of the service was a fraction of the £28,000 savings we made within 24 hours of receiving the advice.
