About Standard Chartered Americas M&A Group

The Americas M&A team focuses on originating and executing cross border transactions that involve the Bank's key footprint regions of Asia, Africa and the Middle East - including both inbound and outbound transactions. We are well-positioned to originate and execute these transactions given our deep relationships with corporate and private equity clients both in the Americas and our footprint.

The team in New York strongly complements the Bank's leading M&A advisory capabilities from teams in the footprint to deliver high quality advisory and execution capabilities. We differentiate ourselves with our specialized focus on cross-border strategic advisory and benefit from a strong competitive advantage provided by our deep footprint network compared to other leading investment banks in the US. We advise on a wide range of transactions including acquisitions and divestitures of public and private companies, strategic capital raises, fairness opinions and other strategic initiatives.

We are supported by a deep bench of industry bankers in the Global Industries Group (GIG), including Commercial Real Estate (CRE), Commodities Trading & Agribusiness (CTA), Financial & Strategic Investors Group (FSIG), Metals & Mining (M&M), Oil & Gas (O&G) and Power, Utilities & Infrastructure (PUI) sectors. We leverage the industry relationships and expertise of these bankers to drive business in the respective sectors. We have extensive experience originating and executing business across the spectrum of industry sectors, however, including in addition Consumer, Industrial and TMT.

The team continues to be a key growth initiative of the global M&A franchise in what is the most prominent M&A market globally. We continue to support the Bank in offering high quality, end-to-end solutions to existing and prospective clients.
