IMAP Values

We share the same common values and principles that guide our work, with our clients and with each other.

Execution: 'Strike while the iron is hot' - we design each step of the M&A process to increase the probability of successful execution.

Dedication: We are entrepreneurs and invest in to each transaction what is needed to succeed and abide by and continuously improve professional advisory standards.

Informality: Mastering the psychology of negotiations requires getting to know the people involved in the transaction.

Talent: Creating value for our clients requires looking beyond the obvious and leveraging the diversity of our resources to come up with fresh ideas.

IMAP Conferences

Relationships are built over time and through personal interaction, which is why IMAP professionals, for the benefit of their clients, commit so much time to understanding each other – both professionally and personally. 


To continue to foster the close, collaborative spirit grounded in trust that IMAP is known for, two in-person international conferences are held every year. Regional training meetings for Analysts and Associates and global sector group virtual meetings are also held.  IMAP conferences support networking and focus on regional business and cross-border deal opportunities and sharing best practices on deal execution to continually improve corporate governance across all the IMAP teams.
