ALM Intelligence has announced PwC as a leader in Transactions – Acquisitions Consulting. Being assessed as a “leader” is defined as a practice at the top of the market in terms of capabilities to create client impact through their depth of expertise and ability to deploy it across a range of engagement models. Leaders are unique in their ability to independently execute end-to-end projects across the full spectrum of client contexts.
The report states that, “Of all the Big Four firms, PwC has the largest deals organisation by headcount and one of the legacy practices. The impact of Strategy& is finally being felt and the firm is gaining some traction in the earlier phases of the deal process. PwC has one of the tightest-knit TAS organisations among the Big Four with teams working seamlessly across domains.” The author of the report, Tomek Jankowski, went on to say that “Moreso than most other firms, PwC brings advanced technology and data analytics to the deals process. PwC’s traditional execution focus has expanded to greater control and capabilities throughout the entire deals process, and seeks, as the firm says, “to bridge transaction execution to value creation.”
