Top advisers by value and volume

According to GlobalData’s ‘Global and Oil & Gas M&A Report Financial Adviser League Tables Q1-Q3 2022’, JP Morgan and RBC Capital Markets emerged as the top M&A financial advisers in the sector during the period by value and volume, respectively.

JP Morgan advised on $26bn worth of deals while RBC Capital Markets advised on a total of 22 deals.

GlobalData lead analyst Aurojyoti Bose said: “RBC Capital Markets was the only firm that managed to advise on more than 20 deals during Q1-Q3 2022. It was also a strong contender for the top spot by value and missed it by a whisker.

“Both RBC Capital Markets and JP Morgan advised on six billion-dollar deals each. However, JP Morgan managed to lead by value while RBC Capital Markets fell short of just $193m from occupying the top position and settled at the second position by this metric.”

According to the  financial deals database of GlobalData, the other high rankers by value included Citi, that took the third position with $19.1bn worth of deals followed by Goldman Sachs with $17.5bn, and Jefferies with $15.7bn.

In terms of volume, Jefferies secured the second position with 18 deals, followed by JP Morgan with 14 deals, Evercore with 14 deals, and Citi with 13 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.
