Growth in private equity propels RSM UK to GBP4bn of deals in 2021

RSM UK has advised on over 240 deals this year, with a combined value of GBP4.1 billion across the UK – showcasing a record year for the corporate finance practice and a 37 per cent increase in value over the prior year.

Of these deals, 136 transactions involved private equity (PE), growth of 79 per cent on the prior year as mid-market PE firms had their busiest year on record. The 136 transactions had a combined deal value of over GBP3 billion and were completed with 65 different PE firms, 59 per cent more than the prior year.

RSM UK’s growth in PE has been hugely assisted by its leading roles in some high-profile transactions this year as well as a 20 per cent increase in the number of deals the team has marketed to PE. The sale of Protec Fire & Security to Bosch for example, generated significant interest from mid-market PE firms globally and demonstrates RSM’s ability to complete large, complex transactions.
