Global M&A Turkey was established in 1997 specializing in mergers, acquisitions, divestitures and general intermediation for shareholder change of companies.

Our team is comprised of result-oriented executives with impressive performance records, earned through the diversity of their past experiences. We assist foreign multinational companies seeking to make significant investments in Turkey, whether by way of merger, acquisition, strategic alliance or joint ventures. At the same time, we advise Turkish companies seeking to sell their shares, raise capital, make acquisitions and disposals, or form strategic alliances with foreign partners.

Moreover, we tackle the difficulties in changing family owned Turkish businesses into public companies. We assist shareholders by presenting a fair and realistic picture about risks and values to help them transact their business smoothly, whether selling or buying shares. We offer focused, independent, objective and dedicated advice for our clients' business goals.

We also consult mid cap to large cap family companies in Turkey on strategy and corporate governance.

Global M&A Turkey also trades locally under the name Total Finans.
