Alantra Austria & CEE will work closely together with the Alantra subsidiaries in Frankfurt and Zurich in order to expand investment banking services for the mid-market segment in the DACH region. Moreover, the Vienna office will support local and international customers with their transactions in the CEE region.
Alantra is represented in numerous locations in Europe, the USA, Asia and Latin America, focusing on the two areas of investment banking and asset management. The company was most recently rated ninth in the M&A ranking compiled by Mergermarket in the DACH region. With this step, it has strengthened its presence in Germany, Austria and Switzerland, where the company has already been represented since the year 2013.
“Vienna is the logical location for a CEE headquarters, especially when it involves serving the smaller markets of Central and South East Europe. Amongst other reasons, Alantra decided in favor of Vienna due to its central geographical location and its outstanding infrastructure, also when it comes to flight connections”, says Klaus Vukovich, Managing Partner of Alantra Austria & CEE. “This is also relevant for employees coming from the region. One can find highly qualified employees in Austria with a command of Eastern European languages, are globally oriented and want to work in an international environment. Last but not least, Austria stands out due to its unparalleled quality of life, and is known for culture, a clean environment, beautiful mountains and lakes – as well as for international schools and as a location for international organizations such as the United Nations”, Vukovich adds.
