Our unmatched mapping of the UK financial services sector allows us to identify the fullest range of buyers and sellers. The largest buyer group (see M&A trends) is overseas groups already with a UK presence. There are over 1,000 overseas groups (see Geographic) invested in the UK, which have been identified by activity and country of ownership. Using the search facility you can check the ownership, activity and indicative value banding of any financial services business. Register and we will send you weekly updates on any changes in FCA authorised companies that you select in your alert list and our IMAS monthly M&A email.
