We have long-standing links to larger banking or investment banking ‘boutique’ businesses in different developed and emerging markets. Part of this is reflected in Melcofin & Co. having joined forces with the Terra Corporate Finance Alliance. This non-exclusive association was founded in 2002 and offers the international resources of hundreds of investment bankers and M&A advisers operating in the world’s key business centers. The network is comprised of 15 investment banks in 20 countries, primarily in Europe, the United States and the Far East. The close cooperation among members of the Terra network enables every member to draw on international resources, the knowledge and expertise of all of the other members and exposure to unique acquisition opportunities being handled by members of the network. Each member of the Terra Corporate Finance Alliance brings its local expertise to each transaction, a deep understanding of a variety of industries, connections with the local business community and the ability to transact cross-border transactions.
