That’s why Deloitte Corporate Finance LLC (DCF) helps by leveraging the capabilities of the world’s largest professional services organization to connect acquirers and sellers and facilitate debt and equity capital raises—regardless of where stakeholders are situated.

Bringing investment banking to your doorstep

Looking to expand or undertake acquisitions in international M&A markets? Do you need to sell your business or procure debt financing from an international counterparty? We are here to accompany you on this journey. Deloitte Corporate Finance LLC (DCF) is the investment banking arm of Deloitte in the US, and an active adviser across industries globally. Our team combines decades of transaction experience with a sector-focused approach, offering deep knowledge and eminence in our core industry segments. We maintain regular dialogue with both strategic players and financial sponsors in key markets throughout the world, cover more than 250 non-bank lenders, and offer up-to-date market insights to our clients. We are leaders in M&A and debt & capital advisory—guiding clients through the transaction process with tailored approaches to meet their specific needs.

With access to more than 330,000 professionals in 142 countries and territories, Deloitte delivers a distinct combination of global advice with local knowledge: wherever your business is located, there’s a Deloitte office nearby. We have successfully assisted international companies to access the US market via M&A, advised international businesses on sales to US financial sponsors, and helped our clients raise multi-hundred-million-dollar debt financings to either accelerate their growth plans or undertake an acquisition.

Our international offering, led by dedicated US cross-border professionals with significant global experience, is supported by DCF’s US-based global industry leaders, who contribute their sector knowledge and experience to help enhance transaction execution for our cross-border clients. They have trusted relationships with the boards and C-suites of many of the largest business groups, financial sponsors, and key lenders at the core of the industries where we operate.

It is in difficult times that impartial financial advice matters most. As the global economy was impacted by the onset of the pandemic in 2020, we worked tirelessly to assist our clients on hundreds of strategic transactions. The Deloitte Touche Tohmatsu’s Limited (DTTL) network of member firms finished the year as the #1 Financial Advisor for Global M&A on the deal count, having advised on 487 deals in 2020, according to Mergermarket for a total combined enterprise value of US$110.1 billion.1
