Globalization and industry specialization reshapes mid-market M&A advisory

BINDER CORPORATE FINANCE BECOMES OAKLINS SWITZERLAND – Member of the largest global mid-market M&A advisor Oaklins:

Members of the worldwide organization of M&A International in 40 countries unite today to create a new global M&A advisory company: Oaklins.

Globalization has been a major trend in the global economy for decades and an important driver for M&A activities for both large and mid-cap companies. For mid-market M&A advisors such as Binder Corporate Finance it is therefore a logical step to combine their activities internationally to the benefit of their clients.

In addition, only a closely linked and worldwide positioned organization is able to meet the growing demand of the mid-market for industry specific consulting. Oaklins has defined 14 industry sectors on a global basis, each staffed by qualified specialists and supported by dedicated resources. This enables Oaklins to involve industry specialists in mid-market deals, at a level of professionalism that to date was reserved to the largest global transactions.

Oaklins aims to combine the success factors of an M&A boutique – experience based and entrepreneurial advisory close to the customer – with the capabilities of a global organization, thereby offering clients a real added value for their global M&A endeavors.

In Oaklins, 700 seasoned M&A professionals in all relevant economic centers of the world have joined forces. In the predecessor organization M&A International, senior professionals have worked together for 30 years and completed a total of 1,500 transactions in the past five years. This solid track record was rewarded with position 6 in the Thomson Reuters global mid-market ranking of 2015.
