Our sector model is rooted in our belief that to build long-lasting relationships with our clients which create value, we need to understand not only their immediate business needs, but the industry context in which they operate. And that could be everything from broad knowledge of the sector and its trends and history, to personally knowing the senior individuals within that space in order to be on top of industry developments and opportunities.

“In our industry verticals, we have built very strong and long-lasting relationships to executives, owners and investors around the globe, who value our profound industry expertise and our unique understanding of their businesses on a subsector level” Michaela Pfeifenberger

Here are just a few stories from our colleagues working in our sector teams around the globe:

“At Alantra, we believe we can create outstanding results for our clients by knowing industries inside out and combining it with our strong local teams. In our industry verticals, we have built very strong and long-lasting relationships to executives, owners and investors around the globe, who value our profound industry expertise and our unique understanding of their businesses on a subsector level. The global sector teams are complemented by our country offices, who are extremely well connected into the local markets and M&A community. A good example for our approach is the Caljan transaction, where our IAM team has worked with team members form Germany, Stockholm and Boston, to achieve a very good outcome for our client” Michaela Pfeifenberger, Director (Corporate Finance Germany)

“Having a deep-rooted specialism in the food and beverage sector gives me genuine knowledge of the sector players, dynamics and value drivers. This allows me to talk exactly the same language as my clients and deliver highly tailored M&A advice.” Charles Lanceley, Director (Corporate Finance UK)

“In an increasingly competitive advisory market, the importance of sector specialism has never been more apparent. Building upon the foundations of strong technical skills in investment banking as one’s career progresses allows you to offer credible, value added advice to clients. With a specific sector focus, knowledge of relevant macroeconomic trends, market participants, valuation drivers, buyers and key people within a sector, is essential to winning work, and it allows you to conduct a process with the highest chance of success. Multiple specialisms within sector teams can be hugely complementary, and the combination of individuals’ knowledge within deal teams adds significant value to clients and avoids common pitfalls. The amplification of sector specialization throughout the global Alantra group has helped us to create a differentiated brand identity and continue to increase the quality of our deal flow.” Bobby Fletcher, Director (Corporate Finance UK)
