In order to ensure we have access to international buyers for our clients’ businesses, and similarly identify overseas acquisition opportunities, Corbett Keeling has been instrumental in building Globalscope, an international partnership of corporate finance firms. Globalscope now comprises over 600 corporate financiers from more than 50 partner firms in countries covering 6 continents, with whom we work closely to generate M&A opportunities for our clients.
This network provides us with the global reach and the local presence and impact which is vital when advising clients on their cross-border objectives, including sourcing overseas buyers and sellers of businesses.
In 2016, our partnership executed over 120 transactions with a cumulative transaction value of €2.2bn.
Globalscope partners communicate regularly, coming together twice a year and maintaining frequent sector focused meeting, phone and e-mail contact, in order to generate international buying and selling opportunities for our clients.
