CFI Netherlands

Combining a global mentality on M&A with our local eye for the essence

Contact us

The Netherlands & Belgium

Thanks to a very open economy and being the world’s fifth largest exporter, cross-border investments and cross-border M&A are well rooted in the DNA of the Dutch economy. Our CFI team in The Netherlands prides itself on building long-term relationships in select key vertical markets and employs a through-the-cycle focus on the HR Services, Software & IT Services, Niche Industrials and Machinery sectors. Our senior team of experienced M&A professionals guides clients through their M&A processes while adding value and advice

CFI Netherlands excels in M&A sellside, buyside and debt advisory thanks to its dedicated focus. Due to a constant flow of transactions in our sectors, we foster an ethos of frequent strategic dialogues with relevant buyers and the private equity community. This gives us unparalleled knowledge in crafting the ‘right’ equity story for strategic buyers and private equity bidders, and defending it. In parallel, our extensive network and contacts across the ecosystem make us an invaluable partner for (cross-border) buyside M&A. We are able to target our client’s ideal candidates, and utilize our local network in our key vertical markets to our client’s benefit.

We combine our passion for deals with a strong financial acumen, which we showcase when we accompany our clients with independent advice on raising debt, equity or mezzanine capital for M&A or restructuring purposes.

We’re one of the proud founders of CFI in 2006 and as pioneering entrepreneurs we remain committed to the firm to date.

Latest Transactions

What our clients say

  • “Based on the proven HR services knowledge and experience and their full committment to this deal, CFI was selected as the M&A advisor of choice. CFI has convincingly evidenced its unique market insights in the HR services market by establishing this cross-border transaction with a buyer which had not yet entered the Dutch market”.

    Mr Maarten Derks, partner at TIIN Capital on the exit of ORMIT to 3D Investors and Pauwels Consulting

  • “The amount of work and complexity involved in a sale process with international trade buyers is big. Now having gone through it, we couldn’t be happier that we selected CFI to lead the transaction. Their transactional fortitude, industry knowledge, international reach and ability to work well with the entire ISG team and its diverse shareholder base proved essential in this successful transaction outcome”

    Patrick Roskam, CEO of Industrial Safety Group (Arbo Support), on its sale to DEKRA

  • “We hired CFI because of its focus and track record of executing transactions in the HR services segment. They did a great job finding an excellent company for KP&T and Staatvast to partner with.”

    Mr Gijs Botman, partner at Mentha Capital on the exit of KP&T and Staatvast to Egeria Investments

  • “For Antea the investment in Tradinco resulted in very positive returns. We wish Tradinco a wonderful future within the Indutrade Group and we would like to thank its CEO Mr Richard Derksen for the pleasant collaboration these last years. We would also like to thank CFI for their contribution in this exit. A job well done. We can wholeheartedly recommend CFI.”

    Mr Robert De Boeck, managing partner at Antea Participaties on the exit of Tradinco to Indutrade

  • “I am delighted that Trinamics was invested in by a long-term financial partner. This also created a fantastic opportunity for senior management. Roland and I are convinced that this combination will help Trinamics continue to flourish. My thanks go out to the team of CFI for their advice and support throughout. Their expertise and commitment to the HR Services sector helped to ensure a smooth process and an excellent outcome for all parties.”
