2022: So far In Venture Capital

Global investment in 2022 has been majorly dominated by North America, Europe, and Asia Pacific, whereas the Middle East, and South and Central America have recorded low investments comparatively. In light of this, Europe and North America have been identified as the major destinations for Private Equity and Venture Capital (PE/VC) investments.   GlobalData’s whitepaper analyzes which sectors PE/VC firms have been investing in, looking at Technology, Media, and Telecom, with these sectors recording $356 billion and a deal volume of over 10,000 deals in 2022. Healthcare, Financial Services, Business & Consumer Services, and Construction sectors have also seen high investment activity by PE/VC firms, recording a deal value of over $70 billion each.   But what can this mean for you?   Understand how the Deals Database on GlobalData Explorer can be leveraged to:  
  • Track the Aggregate Investment Volumes in PE/VC-Stage firms across geographies and sectors, in addition to viewing the specific deals that drove these volumes
  • Identify the top investors already active in any sector-Geography combinations
  • Assess the Performance of Financial and Legal Advisors, supporting the Dealmaking in any segment of choice (Customizable League tables)
  • Understand what is driving the PE/VC fundraising (Deal Rationale)

Top financial advisers by value and volume

According to GlobalData’s ‘Global and Oil & Gas M&A Report Financial Adviser League Tables Q1 2022’, RBC Capital Markets has been identified as the top M&A financial advisers in the oil and gas sector in Q1 2022 by value and volume.

RBC Capital Markets achieved the top ranking by advising on seven M&A deals worth $11.9bn.

GlobalData lead analyst Aurojyoti Bose said: “While all of the advisors reported single-digit deal volume during Q1 2022, RBC Capital Markets was the only adviser in terms of value that managed to surpass the $10bn mark. Of the seven deals advised by the firm, two were billion-dollar deals that also included one deal valued at more than $5bn.”

According to the financial deals database of GlobalData, the other high rankers by value included Citi, with deals worth $9.4bn; Bank of America, with $8.1bn; Centerview Partners, with $8.1 billion; and Barclays, with $6.4 billion.

In terms of volume, JP Morgan occupied the second position, with five deals; followed by Citi, with four deals; Barclays, with four deals and Jefferies with four deals.

Latham & Watkins has emerged as the top M&A legal adviser by both value and volume in the oil and gas sector in Q1 2022.

Latham & Watkins achieved the top ranking by value by advising on 12 deals worth $14bn, according to GlobalData’s ‘Global and Oil & Gas M&A Report Legal Adviser League Tables Q1 2022.’

GlobalData lead analyst Aurojyoti Bose said: “Latham & Watkins was among the very few advisers that managed to register double-digit deal volume, while also surpassing the $10bn mark in total deal value. Although Latham & Watkins went ahead to top the chart, it faced close competition from Vinson & Elkins as it also advised on the same number of deals. However, Vinson & Elkins lagged by around $2.5bn in value and ended up occupying the second position by both value and volume.”

According to the financial deals database, the other high rankers by value included Gibson Dunn & Crutcher, with deals worth $10.9bn; Kirkland & Ellis, with $10.8bn; and Willkie Farr & Gallagher, with $8.2bn.

In terms of volume, Kirkland & Ellis occupied the third position, with 10 deals; followed by Gibson Dunn & Crutcher, with five deals; and White & Case with four deals.

GlobalData’s league tables are based on the real-time tracking of thousands of company websites, advisory firm websites and other reliable sources available on the secondary domain. A dedicated team of analysts monitors all these sources to gather in-depth details for each deal, including adviser names.

To ensure further robustness to the data, the company also seeks submissions from leading  advisers, through adviser submission forms on GlobalData’s website.
