The New York-based financial institution took the top spot with a total advised deal value of $236.4 billion for advising on 62 deals—the second highest in the sector in 2018, said a report.

According to GlobalData, which tracks all merger and acquisition, private equity, venture capital and asset transaction activity around the world, Morgan Stanley and Goldman Sachs stood second and third, advising on deals worth a total of $232.8 billion and $206.9 billion respectively.

“The growing influence of technology was reflected in about 70% jump in the total deal value in the ICT sector in 2018 as compared with 2017. Significant deal activity also pushed deal values for advisers, with six financial advisers and three legal advisers being involved in more than $100 billion deals each,” said Prakhar Baghmar, Financial Deals Analyst at GlobalData.
