Globalscope Partners convenes for in-person conferences again, in Munich, Germany
For the first time in over two years, Globalscope Partners held their annual Spring Conference in Munich, Germany in late April 2022. John R. Sloan, President, said “Travel restrictions from the pandemic had limited our semi-annual conferences to video forum only since the spring of 2020, like most other international networks. These meetings are essential to the Globalscope experience, as they promote relationship building, which is a key element of our core values, and leads to mutual opportunities to better serve our clients”. The membership of 55 independent investment banks focused on mergers and acquisitions, shared best practices, and reviewed over 100 pending mandates worldwide. Notwithstanding the pandemic, the M&A environment has been robust over the past year with Globalscope members achieving record results on behalf of their clients.
Martijn Peters, Head of Member Recruitment, officially welcomed 6 outstanding firms as new members. These include Bondo Advisors, S.L. (Spain), SEAbridge Partners (Singapore), SXA Inc. (Japan), Pirola Corporate Finance (Italy), AWR Lloyd (Thailand), and (EFSA) East Side Financial Advisory (Serbia). Mr. Peters said “We are delighted to welcome these new members, each of which possess the character, integrity, and expertise, that reflects our strict criteria and core values. All were unanimously approved and accepted by our family member firms. Globalscope continues to search for successful and talented additions to strengthen the presence and expertise of our global family,”.
In 2021, Globalscope member firms closed a record 226 transactions with an aggregate transaction value of over $8 billion USD. At the gala dinner in Munich, members celebrated with our traditional “Toast to Liquidity” announcing our Outstanding Achievement Awards in the following categories:
- Most Valuable Deal—Greif & Co. (United States)
