The M&A Advisor was founded in 1998 to offer insights and intelligence on M&A activities. Over the past eighteen years, through our research, reporting, publishing and summits, we have established the world’s premier network of mergers and acquisitions, restructuring and finance professionals.

The M&A Advisor Summit - “The Future of Finance” is comprised of two feature events: the Symposium and the 15th Annual M&A Advisor Awards.
