Nicholas Assef founded Lincoln Crowne & Company Pty. Limited because wanted to be a leader in a very important investment firm in the Australian and South East Asian markets. So far, he has succeeded with that mission. He is currently the firm’s Executive Director and Senior Analyst, and he uses the skills developed through more than two decades’ experience in such diverse financial areas as mergers and acquisitions, joint ventures and much more to make his clients very happy.

His extensive and varied set of experiences in the corporate world, the legal profession and even the world of higher learning have made him into a tenacious and shrewd negotiator and advisor. For example Nick Assef likes to apply strategies and tactics based largely on "game theory" to secure the best possible outcome for his client. One reason for that is, he is aware that clients don’t hire a firm like Lincoln Crowne to get ordinary outcomes via basic services. They want to receive advice and counsel that is something special.
