BDO has become a global top five M&A advisor for the first time according to the latest league tables issued by Thomson Reuters. The data, which tracks deals worth up to $500m, ranks BDO in position 5 during 2013 up from the year before when the firm was ranked at number 13.

The jump in rankings places BDO just behind some of the Big Four accountancy firms and Goldman Sachs, the investment bank and well away from our mid-market competitors and investment boutiques which operate in this market.

Our excellent position in this ranking is testament to our outstanding performance in the collection of transactions from BDO Member Firms during 2013 which saw 35 countries contributing over 600 deals.
