Advantum Corporate Finance  –

Your Trusted Partner at All Times!

  • Cross-border transaction support
  • Integration management
  • Investor approach and market screening 


We enable and support capital transactions between the growth countries in Asia and large, established markets in the Western hemisphere.


Simply due to population size and growth, combined with an accelerating integration into the global economy and substantial capital accumulation, China and India are extremely relevant focus markets for Advantum. In addition to the ever increasing volume of goods, direct investments - already on an established, solid base – will become all the more important going forward.

The recent past has shown at the same time that many Indian and Chinese investors, when integrating the acquired companies, face particular challenges. The causes – had they been identified as part of the due diligence process (and subsequently resolved or at least mitigated as part of the takeover approach) - would have had a far less negative impact on the investment.

Furthermore, in the difficult attempt to actually integrate the businesses – simply because of distance and differences in corporate cultures - a number of pitfalls, which were not addressed fully and directly, have led, in part, to a full write-off of the investments.

In order to address the challenges outlined, Advantum - in collaboration with Paul & Collegen and partners in the countries - supports Chinese and Indian investors in the conduct of due diligence, transaction structuring and subsequent integration - from setting up reporting structures all the way to outplacement.

Last but not least, as part of our M & A business we actively introduce investors from Asia to our assigned mandates.
