KPMG is among the world leaders in deal advisory. This global trend is also confirmed by the local team in Slovakia, which served as a financial advisor to the seller or buyer in four transactions which were successfully closed over the past seven months.

Activity of KPMG Deal Advisory is repeatedly demonstrated by the renowned global rankings of financial advisors, where the service line regularly reaches top positions. According to Thompson Reuters, KPMG is a global, European and CEE leader in terms of the number of transactions in the segment of small and medium-sized enterprises for the year 2016.

In Slovakia, KPMG has the biggest local team focused on transaction advisory. During the past years it has provided services in more than 300 projects.
