Finatal launches M&A and Corporate Development Practice January 7th, 2022
We’ve entered 2022 as busy, if not busier, than we ended 2021.   It’s an incredibly buoyant market, with demand for M&A and Corporate   Development resources in the PE market significantly higher than it has ever   been. We finished 2021 105% up year-on-year, having placed a range of M&A   and Corporate Development professionals to within various PE and VC-backed   businesses. Last year we successfully placed within the portfolios of the   likes of Livingbridge, Bridgepoint, Waterland, TA Associates, Marlin Equity   Partners, CBPE, HgCapital, Advent International, ECI Partners, August Equity,   and Greyhound Capital.

As a result of this   success and increased demand for M&A and Corporate Development talent, we   have launched a dedicated M&A and Corporate Development Practice. It’s   well publicised that 2021 was a record year for Global M&A transactions   with over $5 trillion of investments for the first time ever. PE backed   investments breached the $1 trillion mark for the first time, over double the   amount achieved in 2020.

With so much deal   activity and opportunity out there, we have noticed a growing trend amongst   PE Funds to now fully delegate the responsibility for M&A and Corporate   Development activities to the portfolio companies, including origination   work, strategy development, integrations, and organisational change. To match   these trends in the market, we have seen the appetite for Corporate   Development professionals increase year-on-year, with the demand for   these roles doubling over the last year. We have listened to our clients   want and have created an experienced team that will solely focus on this   space.  

All indications are   that 2022 will continue in the same vein, so if you are a candidate with   Corporate Development, M&A, Investment Banking, or Transaction Services   experience, or simply want an update on the market, please do not hesitate to   reach out to Nick Hague, Head of M&A and Corporate Development Practice.
