Our Corporate Finance department celebrates its 10-year anniversary!
25 June 2019
This year, our Corporate Finance (CF) department is celebrating its 10th anniversary. For this special occasion, CF colleagues and alumni’s gathered, together with their spouses, on Friday 14th of June for a Casino party at the Autoworld museum in Brussels. This was also the opportunity to look back at the key achievements and milestones of this department over these past 10 years.
The Corporate Finance department was created in 2009 around 5 colleagues coming from our Audit and Tax & Legal departments. After 5 years, the division was composed of 20 staff and was already recognized as one of the leading financial advisers in Belgium. In 10 years, the CF team has multiplied its sales by ten and has grown to more than 40 colleagues, specialized in 4 fields: Valuation, Transactions Services, Mergers & Acquisitions (M&A), and Financing Advisory & Modeling.
Today, in the M&A Thomson Reuters ranking, BDO CF is placed 1st both for small-caps in Belgium and mid-caps in the Benelux.
Looking forward, the key success factors of our CF department will be mainly around digitalization, war for (new) talent, changing needs of our clients, and cross-fertilization with the new Advisory activities of BDO.
We would like to take also this opportunity to thank all our clients and partners for their trust in our services, and are looking forward to a continued and fruitful collaboration in the years to come!
