Goldman, Macquarie vie for top spot

Goldman Sachs is just ahead of Macquarie in the race to be the top takeover advisor in Australia.

Just US$37.9 million separates the current number one merger and acquisition advisor in Australia Goldman Sachs Group Inc from Macquarie Group Ltd, currently ranked number two, as both firms seek to end the year as the country’s pre-eminent M&A investment bank.

A little over a month ago, the story was very different. Macquarie was the undisputed number one advisor on pending and completed Australian M&A in the year to September 30.
