Translink Benelux B.V. is proud to announce its merger with corporate finance boutique AenF Partners B.V.

This promises significant benefits for existing and prospective clients, given the businesses’ complementary buy- and sell-side specializations. The merger will also bolster Translink’s footprint across Benelux, adding to the deep global partnerships and expertise evidenced across the growing Translink Corporate Finance group, covering more than 35 countries.

Maurits Hesseling, Managing Partner of Translink Benelux: “Last year, the Translink group put a strategic goal into action, to grow to be in the top 10 within the international M&A mid-market worldwide. Strengthening our presence in the Netherlands was defined as part of this mission, so we started to look for a partner with similar international growth goals and synergies. AenF Partners (Acquisition and Finance) has been an obvious choice for us, and we share a straightforward approach to business and importantly, company culture too. It immediately felt like a good fit. AenF Partners also has strong expertise on the sell-side, while we specialise on the buy-side, so we have complementary strengths.”

AenF Partners has been a formative shaper of the mergers and acquisitions landscape in the Netherlands since 2005. Friso Kuipers, partner and co-founder, says the synergies in ethos and outlook made the merger with Translink a natural fit. “For the last few years, we have been looking for a partner to help us grow our international exposure. Translink’s global expertise and footprint made it a good fit from the start.”

The Translink Benelux office will comprise some 16 M&A experts.
