The Investment Banking team maintained significant activity levels to deliver another record year. The team completed c. 120 transactions, advising on a broad range of assignments for private company shareholders, global corporations, private equity houses and other financial institutions. The debt advisory team also helped raise more than €4 billion in debt raising, refinancing and restructuring, private placements, acquisition financing, direct lending, and bond issuance to clients.
Resilience and specialisation has been a key focus for many investors and corporations and this is reflected across our global sector teams with high deal volumes in Technology (29 deals) and Healthcare (23 deals).
The team continues to expand its offering, adding a global Infrastructure and Energy advisory group, and continues to add expertise – the global Technology team now includes over 30 professionals worldwide.
This excellent performance has enabled us to reach a top position in Mergermarket’s latest league tables, ranking #2 independent advisor to Private Equity Houses in Europe and entering the Global Buyouts Top20 ranking. Alantra was also named Corporate Finance Adviser of the Year in the 2020 Unquote British Private Equity Awards.
