Eighth in the world for number of deals

Global Review names Hilton Smythe eighth in the world for volume of deals

Hilton Smythe Group, a national business and finance broker with headquarters in Bolton, is celebrating being ranked eighth in the world for number of deals made in the first nine months of the year, according to the Global Small-Cap M&A review from REFINITIV.

The firm was also ranked fifth in Europe and third in the UK after securing almost 200 deals in 2021.

Last year, Hilton Smythe ranked 15th in the world, and managed to climb seven spaces in the chart thanks to 117 additional sales compared to 2020.

Eighth in the world for number of deals

The Global Small-Cap M&A report looked at financial deals made between 1 January and 30 September. Other companies to feature in the top 10 include:

  • PricewaterhouseCoopers
  • KPMG
  • Deloitte
  • Ernst & Young.

Gareth Smyth, CEO of Hilton Smythe Group said: “We are delighted that our team has been recognised for the hard work it has done this year, with an exemplary number of deals in the national market. Everyone has been working incredibly hard, both in the office and remotely, and the results speak for themselves.

“Seeing a year-to-date increase between last year and this year of 143 per cent has been a fantastic success and has clearly contributed to us making it into the top 10 with some of the biggest financial firms in the world.

“We’re not resting on our laurels though, and we’re already on track to meet, or even exceed, the number of deals we’ve made in the next quarter, which is amazing. We could even climb a bit higher in the world rankings.

“I hope this will lead to better economic news nationally in the near future.”
