And they are among the parties keen on the struggling League One outfit.
The plan would be for them to work with a front man who would be the new owner but using their contacts and clients.
The group looked at a couple of Championship clubs but they were too dear.
The Addicks’ current owner Thomas Sandgaard would sell.
And the snag of a buyer paying a huge sum for both the club and the land would be removed as this agency only wants the football side.
The move would need to be cleared by the EFL.
That is because it is officially against the rules for an agency to have a financial stake in a club.
But appointing the right team to run Charlton on their behalf could be inside the regulations.
