The Terra Alliance held its 40th international M&A conference last week in Chicago, hosted by North American member firm, Origin Merchant Partners. The meeting marked the 20th anniversary of the Alliance which was originally formed in Europe in 2002.

Over the course of two days over 30 delegates, representing 13 member firms, dived into global economic and commercial trends and explored the impact on local markets.  Of most significance were the discussions about cross-border M&A opportunities and how the Alliance’s reach could most effectively support each other.

The network delivers consistently high levels of cooperation and over the past five years member firms have completed 515 transactions with a combined value of $112 billion.

The next Terra Alliance conference will be hosted by Italian member firm, Banca Sella Group, in Milan in Spring 2023.  Banca Sella is one of Italy’s largest banks.
