2018 has been yet another year of success for Alantra, both in terms of corporate growth and business activity.
- We advised on 201 transactions in Investment Banking, which helped us rank among the Top 5 independent advisors in Europe, in M&A and in bond placings. On top of that, we grew our technology practice with the addition of a team based in San Francisco, strengthened our Chinese office, acquired KPMG’s global portfolio advisory business, and incorporated an Equity Capital Markets team in Italy.
- 2018 was also a remarkable year for our Asset Management division, having raised over €900Mn in new assets as of December 31st. In addition, we announced the acquisition of a strategic stake in Access Capital Partners, the sale of a 25% stake in our Wealth Management business to grupo Mutua, and the transfer of the remaining portfolio companies of the Alantra PEF II to a new secondary vehicle.
These accomplishments are the result of our strategic goal to become a leading player in the investment banking and asset management segments in order to better serve our mid-market clients across the globe.
