Leading consumer products sector specialist investment bank, Consensus of the USA, announced as 16th member firm of the Terra Alliance network

The Terra Alliance held its latest bi-annual international corporate finance meeting in London last week hosted by UK member firm, Quercus Corporate Finance LLP.  Representatives of the Alliance’s 15 member firms came together to discuss current and future opportunities for cross-border M&A and capital raisings against the backdrop of a world economy which is forecast to grow by 3.1% in 2018.

During the meeting, it was announced that US investment bank, Consensus, would join the Alliance with immediate effect. Consensus focuses on consumer-facing groups.

The London meeting represents the Terra Alliance’s 33rd international corporate finance meeting following the most recent gathering in Sydney, Australia, in November 2017. The next meeting will be held in Singapore in October this year and will be hosted by local member firm, Pickering Pacific.

Quercus Partner and Terra Alliance Steering Committee member Andrew Clegg commented:

“We have been delighted to host our colleagues at such an important time for the UK.  The London 2018 meeting has been a great success with a real mood of optimism.  Particularly encouraging has been the level of interest in the UK as a destination for foreign investment and this resonates with our own experience on live transactions.  I am also delighted that the Consensus team is joining the Alliance.  They bring to bear a huge amount of consumer sector experience which will be of real value to other member firms and their clients across the globe.”
