CHICAGO & MEXICO CITY - Oct. 20, 2020 - PRLog -- CDI Global, an international firm specializing in mergers, acquisitions and divestitures, is pleased to announce that Pedralbes Partners advisory practice has joined its integrated network of advisory firms. CDI Global is among the leaders in cross-border business combinations, providing on-location support and expertise across a wide range of industries.

Pedralbes Partners is an independent advisory firm and investment manager set up in 2014 in Mexico City. Founded by former Citigroup investment banker Demian Esser and private equity executive Jose Lopez Portillo, their advisory practice has become one of the leading M&A advisors focused on the Mexican middle market. Together with its senior advisory board, the firm has more than 50 years of transactional advisory experience with some of the world´s leading investment banks.

"Our particular focus is on cross-border M&A transactions, so we are happy to join the CDI Global network to offer our clients truly global advisory coverage," said Demian Esser.

"With its presence in 35 countries, CDI Global is one of the largest M&A networks focused on our target market and will help us to serve our clients even better," added Jose Lopez Portillo.

CDI Global specializes in identifying the right opportunities for cross-border transactions involving mid-sized businesses.

Mexico is the 11th largest economy by purchasing power parity, according to the International Monetary Fund. With strong demographic fundamentals and a rising middle class, Mexico has attracted substantial foreign investment over the past years as Latin America´s second largest economy. Due to its proximity to the United States and the recently passed USMCA agreement, Mexico has positioned itself as an industrial manufacturing hub as well as agricultural producer with strong logistics infrastructure in place. The recent rise in internet and mobile phone penetration has turned Mexico into one of the fastest growing e-commerce markets globally. Pedralbes Partners is focusing its advisory activities on the consumer, industrial and technology industries as well as on the agriculture and hospitality sector. CDI Global has deep expertise in these industry sectors.
