Oaklins Netherlands welcomes two new Partners and launches Valuation Advisory Services

Amsterdam, April 2024 - Oaklins Netherlands is proud to announce the appointment of two seasoned experts to its Partner ranks and the launch of Valuation Advisory services. These strategic moves reflect Oaklins' commitment to strengthening its focus on Private Equity and offering comprehensive Valuation Solutions to clients across various sectors.


Oaklins Netherlands is recognized by winning the M&A Award for best mid-market M&A Advisor 2023 and has a proven track record in M&A, debt advisory, and equity raising. Oaklins has consistently delivered exceptional results to businesses of all sizes. The addition of the two new partners sets Oaklins’ in an exceptionally strong position on their way to double the annual deal count in the next five years, justifying the positioning of the company as a leading premium mid-market corporate finance player in the Dutch market.


"We are thrilled to welcome Tijn Bastiaans and Costas Constantinou to our team of partners," said Frederik van der Schoot, Managing Partner at Oaklins Netherlands. "Their extensive experience and understanding of the Private Equity and Valuations market will be invaluable as we continue to expand our team to provide additional services and drive growth for our clients. The launch of Valuation Advisory Services underscores our dedication to delivering comprehensive support across the entire transaction and corporate lifecycle.”


Private Equity coverage

Private Equity has a very strong foothold in the Netherlands and internationally. Oaklins’ research shows that in 2023 Private Equity has been involved in 274 transactions in the Netherlands. With our consistently high deal flow and engagement with almost all Private Equity firms, Oaklins enhances their services for this client group. The addition of Tijn, with his 17 years of investment banking experience, strengthens our capabilities and partnerships within the private equity community.


Tijn Bastiaans expresses his enthusiasm: "After a decade in a Big-4 environment, I am excited to join Oaklins Netherlands. Oaklins' global presence and comprehensive services present an exciting opportunity. With the addition of Costas Constantinou and the launch of our Valuations practice, we offer a complete suite of the corporate finance services to our Private Equity clients. Having worked with most Private Equity firms in the Netherlands, I am keen to contribute to Oaklins’ growth trajectory by serving this important client group."


Comprehensive valuation services

Understanding the value of one’s business, assets, and investments is paramount in today's dynamic business environment. Costas Constantinou brings on board over 20 years of experience in valuing companies and intellectual property. His expertise includes valuations of companies in shareholder disputes, providing fairness opinions, and assessing the value of companies undergoing financial restructuring. Costas mentions his excitement for leading Valuations Advisory at Oaklins: “Oaklins has an excellent reputation in the corporate finance market, and I look forward to enhancing this legacy. A focal point for business valuations is private equity investments, and I warmly welcome Tijn Bastiaans who will focus on this sector. It's an exciting moment to be part of such a dynamic team.”
