Portrait of the managing partner of ARTHOS

Our strength: 25 years of investment banking and corporate M&A

The M&A professionals dedicated to clients’ success

We know that every successful M&A project is based on mutual trust. Confidence in the competence and experience and confidence in a team that adopts the interests of the respective partner with great personal commitment. That describes our philosophy precisely: direct contacts, efficient decision-making structures, goal-oriented procedures. This is what Arne Tödt, Arno Pätzold and the entire ARTHOS team stand for.

Direct contacts

Personal customer support is very important to us. All projects at ARTHOS are managed by an ARTHOS partner, so that our clients benefit directly from our longstanding and in-depth M&A expertise. That is why we can provide tailor-made M&A solutions appropriate to the client’s specific issues. Of course, we ensure the highest standards of confidentiality. In addition, we work exclusively in the interest of our clients.

Outstanding advisory expertise

Holistic and continuous advice is our top priority. We are less concerned with short-term transactions, but are rather also geared towards clients’ long-term goals. Based on our 25 years of M&A experience, we consistently provide high quality advice and successfully guide clients through negotiations with professional expertise. In conjunction with our industry expertise, we thus ensure the best possible success for the project.

Innovative systems

The way we think and act is forward-looking and we are continuously engaged with the digitisation of the client’s and our business. That is why we use the latest M&A tools and databases such as Orbis and Capital IQ. With DriveOnWeb and the M&A ChangeMaker®, we have secure and efficient project management tools at our disposal. We are also an active partner of the global M&A alliance AICA and know the latest trends in our industries.
