I am extremely proud of our team as we have truly made an impact that matters for our clients by combining our market-leading deal experience, an international presence and sector knowledge.

- Jan Söderholm, Head of Financial Advisory 


The past year in Financial Advisory has again been record breaking and we have seen strong growth with great profitability across all our service lines.  

We are proud of our achievements and in particular note the following: 

  • We have continued to win in the market and have made an impact that matters in many of the key M&A events seen in the region during the year.  
  • We have successfully developed our end-to-end M&A capabilities, enabling us to further make an impact for our clients in complex transactions.  
  • We have been able to broaden our scope and have full-cycle M&A services, including lead advisory services to our key clients, including large corporates. 
  • The use of analytics has become an integrated part of our offering and the data-driven approach provides valuable insights to our clients.  

The year involved several cases where we have been able to combine our vast transaction experience with industry expertise for the great benefit of our clients. The industry approach and knowledge are constantly becoming more important and while this is vital for our clients, it also develops our talent and provides opportunities to focus on industries of specific interest. 

Diversity makes us stronger 

Our market-leading Forensic practice is leading the way in its field. It is growing rapidly as we continue to see an increasing need to tackle economic crime, respond in crises and resolve disputes. Environmental, social and governance (ESG) and sustainability themes are also high on the agenda for our clients and for Deloitte, and we see an increasing demand for our ESG services related to M&A as well. 

Finally, we have continued to build a diverse team. Diversity makes us stronger; it develops us as a team and adds positively to our great team spirit. We also encourage our people to continually think of new and innovative ideas or ways of working as we strongly promote a well-balanced working environment. 

It is true that people and clients come first at Deloitte.
