Celebrating 20 years of cross-border deal-making

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 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.

Nick Newlin, Principal at Origin Merchant Partners said:

“For the past 20 years the Terra Alliance has helped businesses to connect on the international stage at all stages of the economic cycle. Chicago has been a very successful meeting and whilst the world may have changed since 2002, member firms’ commitment to working together to achieve great things for our clients remains the same.”

The Terra Alliance 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 May 2023.  Banca Sella is one of Italy’s largest banks.
