Healthcare, Financial Services, Business & Consumer Services, and Construction sectors have also seen high investment activity by PE/VC firms, recording a deal value of over $70 billion each.   But what can this mean for you?   Understand how the Deals Database on GlobalData Explorer can be leveraged to:

Top financial advisers by value and volume

According to GlobalData’s ‘Global and Consumer M&A Report Financial Adviser League Tables Q1 2022’, Morgan Stanley nd Ernst & Young have respectively secured the top spots by value and volume in the consumer sector in Q1 2022.

Morgan Stanley achieved the top ranking by value by advising on $16.7 billion worth of M&A deals, while Ernst & Young led by volume, having advised on a total of 11 deals.

GlobalData lead analyst Aurojyoti Bose said: “Morgan Stanley was the clear winner in terms of value as it was the only adviser to surpass the $10 billion mark, thereby outpacing its peers by a big margin. Moreover, it also managed to occupy the second position by volume.

“On the other hand, while most of the advisers reported single-digit deal volume, Ernst & Young was the only one to report double-digit deal volume. However, it did not feature in the list of top 10 advisers by value due to its involvement in low-value transactions.”

According to the financial deals database of GlobalData, the other high rankers by value included Goldman Sachs, with deals worth $9.4bn; Deutsche Bank, with $8.9bn; Citi, with $8.5bn; and Barclays, with $6.9bn.

In terms of volume, Morgan Stanley occupied the second position, with nine deals; followed by Goldman Sachs, with nine deals; KPMG with nine deals and JP Morgan, with eight deals.

Skadden, Arps, Slate, Meagher & Flom and Kirkland & Ellis have respectively secured the top spots by value and volume in the consumer sector in Q1 2022, respectively.

Skadden, Arps, Slate, Meagher & Flom achieved the top ranking by value by advising on $13.9bn worth of M&A deals, while Kirkland & Ellis led by volume, having advised on a total of 14 deals, according to GlobalData’s ‘Global and Consumer M&A Report Legal Adviser League Tables Q1 2022’.

Bose said: “Kirkland & Ellis was among the only three advisers to record double-digit deal volume. However, it lagged in terms of value and had to settle for the 10th position by this metric.

“Meanwhile, Skadden, Arps, Slate, Meagher & Flom managed to top by value despite advising on about half the number of deals advised by Kirkland & Ellis. The firm’s involvement in two deals valued at more than $5bn was pivotal for the company in securing the top spot by value.”

According to the financial deals database, the other high rankers by value included Latham & Watkins, in second place with deals worth $11.9bn; Sullivan & Cromwell , in third with $7.2bn; Debevoise & Plimpton, and Fried Frank Harris Shriver & Jacobson, both came in fourth with deals worth $6.6bn.

By volume, Latham & Watkins occupied the second position, with 11 deals; followed by Jones Day, with 11 deals; Skadden, Arps, Slate, Meagher & Flom, in fourth with eight deals and DLA Piper coming in fifth with eight deals.

GlobalData’s league tables are based on the real-time tracking of thousands of company websites, advisory firm websites and other reliable sources available on the secondary domain. A dedicated team of analysts monitors all these sources to gather in-depth details for each deal, including adviser names.

To ensure further robustness to the data, the company also seeks submissions from leading  advisers, through adviser submission forms on GlobalData’s website.
