Clairfield International in Amsterdam hosted the Clairfield quarterly partners meeting on June 9-10, 2016. Partners from 19 countries as well as collaborators and providers attended the event, which served as a forum for discussion of business development, client presentations, and sharing of best practices. As part of this event, Clairfield held a panel discussion on the future of the M&A industry and crossborder M&A. The panel included senior M&A bankers from Australia, China, Germany, Israel, Italy, Turkey, and the U.S. who discussed the robust development of M&A, the importance of sector expertise to our clients, and what the wave of recent investment banking mergers means for the industry.
Alexander Klemm, vice-chairman of Clairfield International, hosted the panel. “Gathering the views of international experts and having a lively discussion with a sophisticated audience of investment bankers with the aim of identifying what lies ahead for our international partnership was enlightening as well as entertaining,” said Alex.
Clairfield in the Netherlands began the conference with an exciting announcement: The Dutch Ministry of Finance appointed Clairfield in the Netherlands as exclusive advisor for the sale of the Royal Dutch Mint. The Royal Dutch Mint manufactures circulating coins for the Dutch- and international market, commemorative coins, medals, and royal decorations.
“This is one of multiple privatization transactions we have been involved with but it is certainly the most historically significant, ” said Neil Lomax, partner at Clairfield in the Netherlands. “We are proud of the trust placed in us by the Dutch government and fully expect that the Royal Dutch Mint will provoke international interest.”
