This cross-border and sectorial approach allows us to leverage the unique collective experience of all 700 Oaklins professionals around the world. Throughout each transaction, local teams are leveraged by international experts. A global information system allows partners worldwide to efficiently share sectorial expertise and local knowledge as well as market infromation on valuation trends and developments. In addition, the strength of 14 research and development international clusters will support Oaklins' expertise, establishing it as a key M&A financial adviser in the mid-market segment for years to come.

Canada - formerly FTM Synergis Capital - shares this sentiment: «With the creation of Oaklins, we are now consolidating our presence in the local market as well as internationally. Our ability to access niche sectoral expertise, global businesses, and worldwide funds are key tools for our clients to maximize the value of their transactions.»
