GlobalData, a leading data and analytics company, has revealed its league tables for the top ten financial advisers by value and volume in the oil and gas sector for 2022.

 RBC Capital Markets emerged as the top M&A financial adviser by value and volume in the sector during the period.

It advised on 22 deals worth a total of $25.7bn.

GlobalData lead analyst Aurojyoti Bose said: “RBC Capital Markets was the top advisor by volume in 2021 and managed to retain its leadership in 2022 as well. Meanwhile, a significant shift took place in its ranking by value from eighth position in 2021, to the top position in 2022. Most of the top advisers by value witnessed a decline in 2022, compared to the previous year. In fact, RBC Capital Markets also registered decline but it was relatively less compared to most of its peers.”

According to the  financial deals database of GlobalData, the other high rankers by value included JP Morgan, that took the second position with $23.6bn worth of deals, followed by Goldman Sachs with $19.9bn,  Citi with $19.1bn, 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 of the data, the company also seeks submissions from leading advisers through adviser submission forms on GlobalData’s website.
