Why Choose Aon?

Higher demand for returns and tougher competition are making private equity and corporate M&A more risk averse than ever. With credit institutions more demanding and investors more aware, there's also greater pressure for accurate facts, figures and forecasts. Meanwhile, globalisation and cross-border proliferation means private equity houses and corporates are often dealing in unfamiliar sectors and regions. At Aon, our aim is to help create sustainable value in your mergers, acquisitions and disposals from entry to exit.
