Meet the young stars of M&A


As mergers and acquisitions hit record levels last year, the young dealmakers on Financial News‘ Rising Stars of Investment Banking list made their mark, taking central roles on key deals.

Here are the M&A bankers that rose to the challenge and made it on to FN’s illustrious ranking:

Jack Blomfield, managing director, William Blair

Augustin D’Angerville, managing director, head of M&A, France, JPMorgan

Jonty Edwards, executive director, UK M&A, JPMorgan

Sam Jackson, director, European mergers and acquisitions, RBC Capital Markets

Edward Joudrey, managing director, Emea sellside M&A, Bank of America

Evelyn Phan, executive director, financial sponsors group, Morgan Stanley

Fariza Steel, managing director, financial sponsors, Lazard

This list is not conclusive, as some of the other investment banking rising stars on our list work on mergers as part of sector-focused roles or regional coverage. But the young guns we have spotlighted do include those who advise private equity firms on acquisitions and sales.
