Goldman Sachs tops GlobalData's ranking of global M&A financial advisers in consumer industries for Q2 2018

Goldman Sachs has emerged as the top financial adviser for the consumer industry in the latest mergers and acquisitions (M&A) league table for Q2 2018, compiled by leading data analytics company GlobalData.

The American investment bank held an edge over other advisers, both in terms of value and volume, with $37.3bn and 19 deals respectively, for the quarter. In terms of value, Morgan Stanley closely followed with nine deals worth $35.6bn.

According to GlobalData, which uses its tracking of all merger and acquisition, private equity/venture capital and asset transaction activity globally to compile the league table, Evercore Partner finished third in the league table, with five deals carrying a total value of $18.8bn.

All the six firms that advised on the industry’s biggest high-value deal for the quarter – Conagra Brands acquisition of Pinnacle Foods for $10.9bn – made it into the top 10 list, with five of them capturing the first half of the table.

Prakhar Baghmar, Financial Deals Analyst at GlobalData, said: “Despite advising on all the three top deals of the industry in the quarter, Morgan Stanley couldn’t make it to the top, as Goldman Sachs grabbed a higher number of small ticket transactions alongside the top deals.”

In terms of volume, Goldman Sachs was followed by Rothschild & Co with 18 deals and Lazard with 11. They stood at 4th and 10th positions by value.
