Launch of REACH | Cross-Border Mergers & Acquisitions


May 21, 2024

We are pleased to announce the launch of REACH Cross-Border M&A.  

Formerly known as Global M&A Partners, the new REACH organization brings together the corporate finance and sector expertise of 24 M&A advisory firms operating across 30 countries, who have collaborated hand in hand on cross-border deals for 25 years. REACH specializes in lower mid-market and mid-cap transactions, providing advice to family-owned businesses, private equity funds, and corporate clients on selling, acquiring, or merging businesses both domestically and across international borders.

The REACH deal teams combine sector experts and local market connoisseurs;
demonstrating proven track records, connections to key decision-makers, and seamless execution prowess.  

Ivan Alver, Chairman of REACH:

"We are delighted to launch our new REACH organization, which embodies the core values and competences that define our people and our firms. We listened to our clients and further optimized our processes in order to support our customers in their cross-border transactions. Thus, we leverage our pool of highly experienced dealmakers who bring both deep sector expertise as well as thorough local knowledge to the table. Our coherence allows us to collaborate swiftly across geographies, cultures, and time zones, also under highly challenging circumstances. This discriminator has evolved into our partnership and deal team culture, which is now embodied in our new REACH organization.”

Philipp Elsen, Partner at IOM Advisory:

"With the new REACH organisation, we are pleased to be able to offer our clients an even better service thanks to closer cross-border cooperation with our international colleagues. This ensures that we can globally deliver what IOM stands for: having the right people, in the right place, at the right time".

Since 2010, our REACH advisors have closed over 1,800 cross-border and domestic transactions, with an aggregate deal value of over €60 billion, making us one of the most active and successful M&A organizations worldwide.
