Rothschild & Co was the top M&A financial adviser in Europe in Q1-Q3 2023, according to GlobalData’s ranking of leading M&A advisers.

Analysis by GlobalData reveals that Rothschild & Co achieved the leading position by advising on 155 deals worth $49.1bn.

“Rothschild & Co was among the only two firms that managed to advise on more than 100 deals during Q1-Q3 2023. However, the firm occupying the second position by volume was far behind Rothschild & Co,” said GlobalData lead analyst Aurojyoti Bose.

“Apart from leading the table in terms of volume, Rothschild & Co also managed to advise on some of the big-ticket deals, which helped it occupy the top position by value as well. Rothschild & Co advised on 17 billion-dollar deals [valued at or above $1bn] during Q1-Q3 2023.”

An analysis of GlobalData’s Financial Deals Database reveals that Barclays came second in terms of value by advising on $35bn worth of deals, followed by Goldman Sachs with $34bn, Morgan Stanley with $32.5bn and HSBC with $26.3bn.

Measured by number of transactions, KPMG occupied the second position with 103 deals, followed by PwC with 93 deals, Ernst & Young with 82 deals and Clearwater International with 64 deals.
