No.1 Global Financial Advisor

20 January 2023

The Corporate Finance team has completed 2,095 deals in 2022, a great achievement in a significant downturn of around 30% in M&A volumes globally during the year. The number of deals is slighty higher than the 2,020 collected during 2021, which was an exceptional year in M&A volumes despite the COVID related disruption. Our teams were busier than ever, and this year has shown a continuation of that level of activity. 

Out of the total number of deals, 38% were Private Equity deals and 26% were cross border. 

Following the large number of deals, BDO has achieved top positions in industry league tables such as no.1 Financial Advisor Globally by deal count in Factset league tables 2022 and second leading Financial Due Diligence provider globally in the MergerMarket Accountant rankings 2022.
