IBI awarded 2010 Financial Adviser of the Year for Ireland

IBI Corporate Finance was last night awarded 2010 Financial Adviser of the Year for Ireland at the Financial Times and Mergermarket Group European M&A Awards.  Awards are given in recognition of financial mergers and acquisitions (M&A) expertise and excellence.

This prestigious award follows on from five successive years in which IBI Corporate Finance was ranked No. 1 financial adviser in Ireland by deal volume in the annual review of international M&A activity by specialist M&A publisher, Mergermarket Group.

Variety and complexity

Commenting on the announcement, Róisín Brennan, IBI Executive Chairman, said: “We are delighted that the leading position of IBI Corporate Finance in the Irish financial advisory market has been recognised independently.  IBI consistently advises on more transactions in Ireland than any other financial adviser based on Mergermarket’s analysis.  The variety and complexity of IBI’s clients’ deals are also noteworthy – cross-border deals accounted for 70% of IBI’s total in the last year, reflecting the open nature of the Irish economy, and IBI’s deals were spread over the energy, financial services, food & beverage, healthcare, distribution and technology industries.”
