Mergr is a single purpose tool for diving into and researching the interconnected world of those engaged in Mergers & Acquisitions

Originally founded as a database of private equity firms, Mergr has evolved into a trusted resource that also covers corporates, advisors (legal and financial), and the M&A transactions that connect them.

Updated daily by a dedicated team of analysts to a database built 100% internally, Mergr offers an original perspective and search interface that is designed to provide M&A insights and value to professionals of all types.

Mergr's constant objective is to be a comprehensive, up to date resource on all entities engaged in M&A activity - and provide users with the tools to develop new ideas and opportunities.
