Translink partners from around the world meet in Hamburg to talk global M&A


Translink partners from around the world meet in Hamburg to talk global M&A

Translink Corporate Finance Group partners from across the globe converged on the picturesque city of Hamburg in Germany recently, for the first in person Directors Meeting to be held since the start of the Covid-19 pandemic. Travel restrictions had resulted in delays in what is usually a six-monthly conference, so there was much to discuss, given the robust recovery of the M&A sector globally.

While some partners are in geographies still hampered by travel restrictions and could only join the conference remotely, many were able to make the trip to Hamburg. Against the backdrop of the beautiful Außenalster (the Outer Alster Lake), the event enabled rich conversation with valued colleagues once again. Translink Corporate Finance is a truly international Group, evidenced by the 14 countries represented by 42 delegates who participated to share insights and best practice, and close cross-border deals.

More than 70 transactions have already been concluded across the Group for 2021, covering key growth industries including Health, IT, Food, Manufacturing/ Industrials and Transport/Logistics. The Translink Group has exciting buy- and sell-side mandates, which were discussed in focused one-on-one meetings between the global partners. By all accounts, the final quarter of 2021 looks set to be buoyant.

The next Directors Meeting will take place in Stockholm, Sweden in May 2022.
