For us as a FinTech company, it was important to have not only a classic M&A advisor but also a friendly and close partner at our side who stands by us beyond the regular services. The team did an outstanding job and exceeded our expectations by far.

IEG was a trustful and loyal partner, especially when matching the demands of our existing shareholder base with those of a PE buyer. IEG demonstrated tremendous poise and perseverance. A true dealmaker and bridge builder.

I want to say thank you. For taking us on as a client. For sticking with us… For me, the most important thing is that I learned a whole lot from you. Your sense of timing. Posture during meetings. Tactics in negotiations. Your skill in reading people (me included). The way you split your time. It really was a magical thing to see you work.
Alexander Klöpping
CEO & Founder | Blendle
Running a digital business model based on efficiency and structure, it was clear for us to seek for professional advice and guidance. IEG provided this and more. We found the professionalism that we were looking for, approachability and speed. In many ways IEG exceeded our expectations and was essential to achieve our M&A targets.

IEG was a reliable partner which fully supported Deutsche Post during the important project SIMSme. IEG has managed to achieve a win-win situation for all involved parties based on a very efficient process. We are extremely satisfied with the outstanding performance of IEG.

It was a pleasure and privilege to work with the smart, and forward-thinking team at IEG. We were not only impressed with their financial and technical knowledge but also with their personal approach and coaching. They quickly felt like a part of the team, and the trusted party you want to have on your side in a deal like this.

Thank you very much to IEG for their great job. They have been a strong partner and played a crucial role throughout the entire deal. There were some more complex aspects to this international transaction, and IEG got us to a great result in the end!

IEG was the ideal choice for Mynewsdesk to find the right partner to help drive the M&A agenda. IEG took the time to understand our SaaS business model, product, but most importantly they dedicated time to understand our growth plan so they could find the right target. IEG played a critical role for reaching a successful transaction and without their granular level involvement we would not have achieved and exceeded our expectations.
Mattias Malmström
CEO | Mynewsdesk
IEG’s strong focus in Fintech and their global execution has been instrumental in helping identify and filter through the myriad opportunities while assisting us in this transaction from start to closure.
Ajay Adiseshann
Founder & CEO | PayMate
IEG has been very helpful to us with their deep knowledge of global trends within the fitness industry as well as what is happening in the digital world. On top of it, they have been a great introduction to the neighborhood and helped us to create a lot of pre-opening buzz.

IEG has proven a perfect partner of great competence throughout the entire transaction process. Without IEG there would not have been a deal.

IEG-Kratos has played a crucial role in this transaction by building a bridge of trust. As a SOE, we have to follow a rigorous equity transfer process in compliance with SASAC’s regulations. Our challenge was to explain this to our Italian partner to gain trust and support. I was amazed by how they were able to translate our constraints into international references and execute it.

IEG – Investment Banking Group has proved crucial in the transaction, providing top notch support through out the entire transaction. Driving the process in close cooperation with us as sellers, local management and other advisors.
Stein Yndestad

It has been the best decision of the last year mandating IEG to execute this transaction. A hell of a team! During every stage of the process and through all ups and downs, IEG supported and advised us.
Jakob Riegger

IEG's experienced and very well-connected FinTech team has been the perfect partner for us during the entire transaction with Deutsche Börse. Their technical understanding of our business was more than helpful and has accelerated the process vastly. Such an efficient support is very important in order to stay focused on the daily business and to ensure rational decision making - especially when things are heating up.

IEG – Investment Banking Group has been a strong partner during the whole disposal process of Motor-Talk. They provided an excellent service, due to the capabilities of the IEG team to align and consider all interest of every shareholder.
Prof. Hartmut Wöhlbier
fmr Shareholder | MotorTalk
The network of IEG within the Fintech sector helped a lot and sets IEG apart. IEG has accompanied the whole process – incl. preparation of all documents, management of meetings and negotiation during the DD process. It was very helpful to have an experienced entity with us who has completed this kind of transactions before. To have a second party involved who is able to contradict the investor based on experience, is a great support.
