GlobalData, a leading data and analytics company, has revealed its league tables for top ten financial advisers by value and volume in North America for Q1-Q3 2022.

A total of 11,306 merger and acquisition (M&A) deals worth $1.1tn were announced in the region during the period.

Top advisers by value and volume

According to GlobalData’s ‘Global and North America M&A Report Financial Adviser League Tables Q1-Q3 2022’, Goldman Sachs and Houlihan Lokey were the top M&A financial advisers in the region during the period by value and volume, respectively.

Goldman Sachs advised on $497.9bn worth of deals, while Houlihan Lokey advised on a total of 142 deals.

GlobalData lead analyst Aurojyoti Bose said: “Goldman Sachs was the only adviser to surpass $400bn in total deal value but fell shy of hitting the $500bn. The firm advised on $54bn deals, including 14 deals valued more than $10bn—of which two were valued more than $50bn.

“Moreover, Goldman Sachs was among a small number of firms that managed to advise on more than 100 deals during Q1–Q3 2022. As a result, it also occupied second position by deal volume in GlobalData’s league table. Meanwhile, Houlihan Lokey did not feature in the top 10 list by deal value—despite leading by volume—due to its involvement in relatively low-value transactions.”
