About Axial League Table Methodology

Unlike other league table structures that have remained the same for years, Axial league tables include investment banks that reveal their selectivity, the relative attractiveness of their client’s businesses, and their overall sell-side process efficacy.

The investment banks at the top of Axial’s League Table are leaders across the following categories:

  • Client Quality: Buy-side demand for engagements represented by the advisor.
  • Buy-Side Targeting: The advisor’s ability to balance selectivity, accuracy, and breadth when identifying potential buyers.
  • Process Effectiveness: The advisor’s ability to generate positive outcomes for their client. 
  • Overall Deal Relevance: How many buy-side mandates (financial and strategic) align with the advisor’s engagements.
  • Process Selectivity: How broad or narrow are the advisors’ sell-side processes relative to their peers?
  • Signed NDAs: How many buyers indicate interest in each advisor’s engagements, measured by the number of signed NDAs.
  • Buyer Referrals: Feedback Axial receives from buyers regarding the manner in which the advisor manages their processes.
  • Closed Deals: How many deals has the advisor closed involving one or more Axial buyers in the process?
