Goldman Sachs often tops the global M&A adviser rankings but in the 12 months under review it extended its lead to a marked degree both in dollar volume and number of deals. It advised on 372 M&A transactions worth $735 billion, well ahead of second-ranked JPMorgan, which advised on 293 deals worth $696 billion. Meanwhile third-placed Bank of America Merrill Lynch advised on 241 deals worth $578 billion and Goldman’s great traditional rival Morgan Stanley advised on 297 deals worth $546 billion.

Every year, competitors try to write Goldman off for its conflicts of interest.
