M&A deal sourcing partner Finquest doubles private company database

Finquest, a fintech company that helps private equity and corporate mergers & acquisitions teams source proprietary mid-market deals, has expanded its private company database by 100% alongside headcount growth to 250 global employees.

Finquest now makes over 100 million mid-market companies discoverable to potential investors and corporate buyers. The data it collects on these companies is uniquely gathered, organised, augmented by AI, and moderated by humans, making it unrivalled in breadth and searchability. 
Thanks to this, Finquest addresses the biggest question facing Private Equity and Corporate M&A teams when it comes to deal sourcing: is this the best target company out there?
Studies estimate that companies spend around $2 trillion per year on acquisition efforts, and that more than 50% of these efforts fail to create value. Finquest’s unique deal sourcing formula solves this problem by helping clients comprehensively map a market and connect with the most relevant and actionable targets, in a matter of weeks. 
Clients are supported by a global team now comprising 250 members across nine offices in Europe, the United States and Asia. This is a more than 140 percent year-on-year increase and reflects the firm’s growing client base. Finquest now services private equity firms that cumulatively manage more than $1.5 trillion of direct investment across all sectors and geographies as well as a diversified portfolio of corporates active in M&A.
The expansion to cover more than 100 million businesses makes Finquest’s offering the most comprehensive of any deal sourcing partner and opens up more of the low and middle market to acquirers than ever before. This will help unlock more opportunities in often fragmented and opaque private markets and provide an outlet for the hundreds of millions currently set aside for M&A.
