Degroof Petercam, ranked 4th Benelux Broker in the latest Extel Survey, has long-standing expertise and experience in capital market solutions and as a BENELUX broker. Meanwhile, IMAP Netherlands, ranked 3rd by the number of deals in the 2021 Dutch Mergers & Acquisitions (M&A) league tables, is a well-recognized M&A advisory practice and has a deep-rooted network with Dutch midcaps. Therefore, its origination capacity will enable Degroof Petercam to leverage its capital expertise to an extended network of Dutch mid-cap corporates by offering tailor-made equity and debt capital market solutions fueled by its trading desk and in-house research capability. At the same time, IMAP Netherlands strengthens its solutions offering for mid-market clients with equity and debt capital market solutions.

Since signing the agreement, the two firms have intensified their collaboration with the IMAP Netherlands Amsterdam team now operating out of Degroof Petercam's Amsterdam office while one of its bankers, specialized in equity and debt capital markets, will operate from IMAP Netherlands' office in Rotterdam.

Following the announcement, Jan-Pieter Borst, Partner at IMAP Netherlands said: "We look forward to working closely together, bringing a broader and distinctive service-offering to our clients, and driving value creation. We are convinced that bringing Degroof Petercam's debt and equity advisory solutions to our existing clients will prove highly complementary to our strategic M&A capabilities."

François Wohrer, Head of Degroof Petercam Investment Banking commented: "We are delighted to partner with IMAP Netherlands. This partnership ensures an optimal combined presence from start to finish of the deal process, from origination through financing, closing, and integration. By sharing our respective skills and expertise, we can offer our respective clients tailored solutions that best address their needs and expectations."
