Anderson Anderson and Brown (AAB), an independent firm of chartered accountants and business advisors, has been named as the top dealmakers in Scotland for a 14th consecutive year.
The firm completed over 250 deals in the last five years alone, and key transactions included the disposal of flange integrity and maintenance business Equalizer International to the US trade acquirer Actuant and the disposal of London based fastener supplier Precision Technology Supplies to Trifast plc.
Douglas Martin, head of corporate finance, said: “2018 was a busy year for us and the continued increase in our activity is not only recognition to our dynamic team but also the great support we receive from our clients and contacts across Scotland and further afield.
“2018 was a milestone year for us in terms of establishing a presence in the Central Belt deals market and we are delighted with the significant foothold we have already established by the team led by Lyn Calder.”
He added: “At the same time we have invested heavily in building our equity fund-raising team led by Brian McMurray and we are delighted with the quality of opportunities we are now seeing in this space to support early stage and high-growth SME’s looking to raise growth finance.”
