Elements of corporate finance at RITTERWALD


Strategies in a low interest rate environment

Earnings in the financial sector have been limited by persistently low interest rates since 2009 – a situation that is not likely to change in the foreseeable future. We advise companies on their possibilities for a shift in strategy, such as looking more towards commission based revenues.

Secure transactions

In RITTERWALD’s M&A projects, we support our clients with the process of analyzing and acquiring rival firms to enable higher economies of scale and other buy-side benefits. By ensuring complete financial due diligence and preparing reliable multi-year business plans, we build the foundations for secure transactions.

Foreign investors

RITTERWALD acts as a strategic partner to foreign investors keen to enter new business segments in the German or European market. We analyze potential acquisition targets, identify the best negotiating stance and advise clients throughout the entire M&A process.
