Goldman Sachs and UBS were the top M&A financial advisers in South & Central America in Q1-Q3 2023, according to GlobalData’s ranking of leading M&A advisers.

Goldman Sachs topped the charts when measuring the value of deals, advising on $14.4bn worth of deals during the period, while UBS advised on the most transactions with a total of eight deals.

“Goldman Sachs was the clear winner by value as it was the only adviser that managed to surpass the $10bon mark during Q1-Q3 2023,” said GlobalData lead analyst Aurojyoti Bose.

“Meanwhile none of the advisers were able to report double-digit deal volume. UBS, which lead by the number of deals, fell short of only two deals to touch double-digit deal volume during Q1-Q3 2023.”

An analysis of GlobalData’s Financial Deals Database reveals that Bank of Nova Scotia and BMO Capital Markets jointly occupied the second position in terms of value, with each of them advising on $5.7bn worth of deals, followed by Morgan Stanley with $5.5bn and Barclays with $4.3bn.

Measured by number of transactions, 44 Capital Financas Corporativas came second with five deals, followed by Clairfield International with four deals, JP Morgan with three deals and IGC Partners with three deals.
