Deloitte recognized by Mergermarket as the #1 Global M&A Financial Advisor in 2022

News Release

NEW YORK, NY, USA, 25 January 2023—Corporate Finance practices across Deloitte have again been recognized as the #1 Global M&A Financial Advisor by deal volume, according to Mergermarket, in its 2022 Global and Regional M&A Report. Deloitte also achieved the #1 ranking in Austria, Benelux, Canada, Central and Eastern Europe, Ireland, Japan, Portugal, Southeast Asia, and Spain.

In 2022, Deloitte served as financial advisor to 704 M&A transactions.

“2022 was a year marked with war, rising inflation and interest rates, causing overall deal making in M&A to decline 38.5% year on year. But Deloitte managed to keep its deal making at a high with 704 deals in 2022—only a 1% decline on their 2021 count—and landed the first place in the Mergermarket Financial Advisor League Table by deal count,” says Raquel Mozzer, Head of M&A Data Strategy at Mergermarket.

“Since 2022 was one of the most dynamic and volatile years in the history of M&A globally, Deloitte is extremely proud to have closed more deals than any other M&A advisor in the world,” says Phil Colaco, Deloitte Global Corporate Finance leader and CEO of Deloitte Corporate Finance LLC. “Our results are a testament to the perseverance, resilience and quality of Deloitte’s clients, professionals and industry ecosystem members.”

This recognition builds on Deloitte’s continued leadership as financial advisors for M&A, in Mergermarket’s annual Global and Regional M&A Reports as it has placed first for global M&A deal activity by deal volume in 2018 and 2020, and second in 2019.

Deloitte delivers a global network of deal makers and industry specialists, encompassing more than 170 Deloitte firm partners and 1,330 professionals across 120 offices throughout the organization.
