Throughout my career spent in the world of corporate finance, it has become increasingly apparent that business leaders and company proprietors have been adopting a much deeper international outlook when seeking Merger and Acquisition solutions. Global M&A Partners was founded in 1999 to meet just such a need and, in the fourteen years since its inception, has emerged as a highly significant player in today’s international M&A industry. In that, I am proud to say that Global M&A Partners, with its 38 members transacting in more than 50 countries in all five business continents and with some 200 active deal makers supported by 150 business analysts, is ideally positioned to best service the needs of such a highly demanding clientele.
As Chairman of Global M&A Partners supported by an International Executive Committee comprised of seasoned dealmakers, we believe ours is a truly unique network, offering cross border corporate finance expertise with a broad multicultural approach and understanding of client needs at its core.
In our quest to deliver value and transaction success to those clients, we continue to attract and encourage likeminded Firms to our organization. Each of these brings new, or reinforces existing sector specialisms, supplements our localized knowledge and geographic footprint and adds useful contacts for the benefit of our clients. It is this mindset that ensures our network maintains its vibrancy, and our breadth helps deliver wider dealflow opportunities.
Since our foundation we have expanded our service to a full corporate finance offering such as IPOs, project finance, fundraising, restructuring, etc. Over the last five years, we have helped our clients successfully to complete over 1500 transactions with a combined value of €42bn. We conduct business in over 20 languages and service local and multinational enterprises with a typical transaction range of €20m to €500m.
In the following pages we have outlined our unique approach, some of our core sector specialisms and successes attributed to these. I hope they will give you a true flavour for what it is that makes Global M&A Partners so special and an indispensible partner on your particular business journey.
It is my personal hope that Global M&A Partners will become your partner of choice, whenever contemplating cross border M&A activity and that we can help you achieve your strategic business objectives, whatever, or wherever they might be.
