FINANCIAL ADVISORY SERVICES

Putting our intellectual capital and financial expertise to work for clients worldwide

Over the past 40 years, Houlihan Lokey has established one of the largest worldwide financial advisory practices. Our transaction expertise and leadership in the field of valuation inspire confidence in the financial executives, boards of directors, special committees, investors and business owners we serve. In 2015, Thomson Reuters ranked us the No. 1 global M&A fairness opinion advisor over the past 15 years. Our stability, integrity, technical leadership and global capabilities make us a trusted advisor for clients worldwide.

Transaction Opinions

Whether our clients are looking to fulfill their fiduciary duties, mitigate risk or determine corporate value, we are there throughout the transaction process to offer objective advice based on rigorous analysis. We work on behalf of boards of directors, investors, trustees and other corporate leaders to advise and provide fairness and other opinions on a wide range of transactions.

Transaction Advisory Services

Our Transaction Advisory Services are designed to provide our clients with independent advice, due diligence analyses and valuation services starting at the earliest stages of a transaction. While many of our professionals have been members of the world’s most recognized accounting firms, we are able to provide Transaction Advisory Services without the conflicts facing most other providers.

Portfolio Valuation Services

Given the difficulty of valuing illiquid assets and the potential for conflict of interest, private equity firms, hedge funds, other investment managers and financial institutions can rely on us for independent third-party valuation services. We are a leading advisor on valuations required under global accounting standards due to our deep portfolio, private-company and derivatives valuation experience, and our strong relationships with regulators and auditors.

Financial Consulting

A leader in financial advisory, we consult on over 1,000 financial advisory engagements each year. Clients rely on our objectivity and analytical expertise. As an international firm with offices across three continents, we are able to advise clients worldwide. Our trusted team of valuation experts, with real-world management and consulting backgrounds, provide advice that can help advance your vision.
