Axial Investment Banking League Tables

These league tables reveal the top 25 investment banks that were active on the Axial platform in Q1. In Q1, 740 sell-side investment banks and M&A advisors brought a total of 2,775 deals to market. League Table recipients quarterbacked 111 of the total 2,775 deals in the quarter.

Axial’s league table ranking methodology is driven largely by four factors:

  • Client quality (based on pursuits per deal and total recommended buyers)
  • Buyside targeting (pursuit rate per deal)
  • Process effectiveness (ability to progress buyers from initial pursuit to NDA to CIM)
  • Deal outcome (IOI, LOI, and closure rates)
