Founded in 1998, Melcofin is an independent M&A and corporate finance ’boutique’ advisory firm operating from Frankfurt, Paris and Johannesburg. 

Melcofin provides advisory services to family-owned companies, listed companies, early-stage technology and growth companies as well as larger family offices in German-and French speaking Europe, South Africa and the UK.

Melcofin has developed and cultivated an M&A and banking partner network in both developed and emerging markets. Melcofin and its clients benefit from the connectivity of its senior advisors, particularly in German-speaking Europe, France and South Africa. Some of Melcofin’s senior advisers offer strong insights into different sectors and in particular into technologies developed by start-ups.

We place emphasis on our long-standing merchant banking traditions such as discretion and confidentiality.
