Our international network ICFG is delighted to announce that another new member has joined our network in 2020. We are proud to welcome Dutch consultancy firm Match Plan Mergers & Acquisitions to the group, further strengthening our presence in a key European market and bringing new opportunities for cross border transactions to all parties.

Headquartered in The Hague, Match Plan is an independent corporate finance firm specialising in family owned and medium sized enterprises in the Netherlands.

Match Plan was founded in the 1990’s, by the ING Bank. In 2000 Match Plan was privatized and acquired by the former director in collaboration with a group of accountancy firms. Since then, Match Plan has grown into a renowned M&A boutique in the Netherlands, assisting entrepreneurs in the purchase and sale of companies, as well as acting as an independent advisor in valuations and corporate financing. Over the past 25 years their activities have expanded to include larger and more complex deals, including cross-border transactions. Match Plan have worked with a significant number of international clients, building strong relationships and connections within a breadth of industries and sectors.

ICFG and Match Plan are looking forward to the opportunities this association will bring to all parties, with more cross-border deal opportunities on the horizon. ICFG is very much looking forward to formally welcoming the newest member to the network later in the year at their Autumn Conference.

Hans Van de Pas, Partner at Match Plan commented:

“Despite the fact that Match Plan does many international transactions, we were not yet part of an international network. After talking to various networks, ICFG appealed to us the most. ICFG continuously works to improve and strengthen the network. The members are committed to mutually cooperate in order to support each other’s customers and relations internationally. This ambition appeals to us and fits very well with the Match Plan. We are excited to be a part of ICFG and look forward to actively contribute to the network.’’

Christophe Pothier, Chairman of ICFG commented:

“Matchplan is an impressive growing corporate finance company in an impressive country that we are all very happy to work with to densify our ICFG presence in Europe, and to foster international deals in an informed context with professional companies.”
