GlobalData, a leading data and analytics company, has revealed its league tables for top ten financial advisers by value and volume in Middle East and Africa for Q1-Q3 2022.
A total of 906 merger and acquisition (M&A) deals worth $85.7bn were announced in the region during the period.
Top advisers by value and volume
According to GlobalData’s ‘Global and Middle East & Africa M&A Report Financial Adviser League Tables Q1-Q3 2022’, JP Morgan and Rothschild & Co were the top M&A financial advisers in the region during the period by value and volume, respectively.
JP Morgan advised on $13.6bn worth of deals, while Rothschild & Co advised on a total of 13 deals.
GlobalData lead analyst Aurojyoti Bose said: “Rothschild & Co was the only firm with double-digit deal volume during Q1-Q3 2022 but lagged in terms of value and did not feature among the top 10 by value. The average size of deals advised by the firm stood at $86.1m.
“In contrast, JP Morgan, which advised on around half the number of deals advised by Rothschild & Co, registered an average deal size of $1.9bn. The firm advised on two billion-dollar deals, both valued at more than $5bn. JP Morgan’s involvement in such big-ticket deals helped it occupy the top position by value.”
