We come from mid-market and SME M&A

Ascent Corporate Research is an independently owned, provider of deal origination and M&A research services. We’re proud to work with some of the UK’s leading corporate financiers, private equity investors and acquisitive businesses. Our international client base is growing, as our unique service offering and skillsets are in demand from M&A advisers seeking to outsource research and data requirements.

We approach every project like it’s our first while leveraging our experience and ever-growing Intellectual Property. Our straight forward style, desire to deliver quality and entrepreneurial approach is key to establishing long-term relationships with M&A firms, investors and corporate development teams.

Our innovative mindset led us to create a marketplace of businesses wanted and profitable businesses for sale to increase the opportunities for M&A advisors selling businesses and those buying them.
