North America's best bank for advisory 2019: Goldman Sachs

Awards for Excellence 2019

Shareholder activists are on the war path, proxy firms are more vocal, deal jumps are getting more frequent – interlopers are all over the place. For navigating these and other challenges with typical aplomb, Goldman Sachs is our choice for North America’s best bank for advisory.
