Delivering Success on Global Transactions with an Asian Dimension

Consumer, food and retail investment banking at Stenvall Skoeld is focused on delivering mergers and acquisitions (M&A) advisory services to clients planning and executing transactions with an Asian dimension.

Asia is driving growth and reshaping the global consumer, food and retail industry. Whereas growth in the past decades primarily came from lower-income tiers of the consuming class, most of the growth in the next decade will come from higher-income consumers. At the same time, rapid technological change, demographic transition, the economic empowerment of women, smaller average households and other pivotal trends are creating exciting opportunities in Asia and shaking up the competitive landscape in the global consumer sector.

For more than 15 years, Stenvall Skoeld has facilitated successful M&A transactions for clients on global transactions involving Asia. With real time insight into consumer, food and retail markets in China and Southeast Asia and strong execution capabilities, our team provides valuable support to clients on global M&A transactions involving the region.

We maintain regular contact with major strategic and financial acquirers of consumer, food and retail companies, including international and Asian buyers. Our global relationships allow us to connect private companies with global sources of capital and open doors to attractive M&A and partnership opportunities for our clients.

Our subsector focus includes consumer goods and services, food, beverage and agriculture, ecommerce, and retail. Our clients range from multinational companies to small and medium sized privately owned and private equity backed businesses.
