Mergermarket is pleased to present the 1H22 Global and Regional Financial Advisory League Tables.

Once again, Goldman Sachs dominated global deal advisory in the first half of 2022, coming in first place in Mergermarket’s global league by value. The firm advised on US$814.6 billion worth of M&A worldwide over the first six months of the year.

JP Morgan came in second place globally, with US$611.6 billion in deal advisory across the first half. Morgan Stanley was in third place, with US$594.3 billion in deal activity. Both saw a yearly drop in total deal value but maintained the same ranking as in H1 2021—as did Goldman Sachs.

When it comes to the number of transactions, PwC was in top place globally, advising on 361 deals in the first six months of this year, while Deloitte was in second place with a total of 287 transactions under its belt—both maintaining the ranking they achieved in the first half of the previous year.
