According to GlobalData’s report, ‘Oil & Gas and Sector M&A Report Financial Adviser League Tables Q1 2021’, deal value for the sector increased by 66.7% from US$39 billion in Q1 2020 to US$65 billion in Q1 2021.

Aurojyoti Bose, Lead Analyst at GlobalData, comments: “Citi was the only firm that managed to advise on double-digit deal volume. It also managed to advise on some big-ticket deals that included three billion-dollar transactions, which helped it cross the US$10 billion mark and occupy the fourth position by value.

“JP Morgan also advised on three billion-dollar transactions but the deal values were relatively higher, which helped the firm occupy the top spot in terms of value. While the average size of deals advised by JP Morgan stood at US$3.3 billion, it was just US$1.4 billion for Citi.”
