Corporate Finance and Advisory
Oliver Wyman's Corporate Finance and Advisory practice serves principal investment companies to identify and evaluate opportunities to deliver superior returns on their funds. Our clients include leading global buyout funds, venture capital funds, activist investors, hedge funds as well as the principal investment business of banks, insurers and asset managers.
Industry Specialization in Mergers & Acquisitions
As the private equity industry seeks to invest the record amount of capital raised in recent years, competition for assets has never been more fierce. Capital is no longer the differentiator it once was. As funds develop, the requirement for deep industry knowledge has grown to allow funds to compete for more sophisticated and more complex value creation opportunities.
Value of Specialization
Oliver Wyman understands the value of specialization. Over the years, we have built an enviable track record supporting funds as they pursue opportunities in the financial services sector and related industries. Our project teams are comprised of professionals with deep industry expertise drawn from each of our specialist practices – Wealth & Asset Management, Corporate & Institutional Banking, Finance & Risk, Insurance and Retail & Business Banking. When not executing transaction-linked or post transaction efficiency assignments, our staff engages in delivering strategic advisory services to the senior management of leading firms within their respective specialist industries.
