CATALYST PARTNERS, INC. is an independent M&A advisory boutique firm based in Tokyo.

We provide a full range of integrated financial and strategic advisory services to both sell-side and buy-side clients.


We were founded with the mission of providing sophisticated, client-specific and client-oriented advisory services mainly to medium-sized listed public companies, private companies and private equity firms.

We maintain an extensive domestic network of active strategic and financial buyers.



We exclusively focus on mergers and acquisitions advisory services and financial advisory services.

Our professionals have considerable backgrounds in representing primarily sellers, but also buyers of companies across a wide spectrum of industries.



We prefer to emphasize the benefits of our independence from other financial institutions and the consequent absence of conflicts of interest in our advice and services. We believe that carefully aligning our interests with those of our clients should always be the hallmark of our philosophy.


Creating Value

Our mission is to create maximum value for our clients and to produce a result which either meets or exceeds our clients' expectations. Our professional experience and qualifications in the financial analysis, structuring and negotiation of complex transactions have produced outstanding results for our clients.


Cross-border M&A

In today’s global economy, cross-border mergers and acquisitions are essential to the survival and continued growth of many international medium-sized enterprises as well as large-sized ones.

Increasingly, they look for acquisition outside their home country, seeking access to new markets for new product lines and new customer bases, and looking for overseas markets which permit the realization of lower cost manufacturing and distribution opportunities.


Focus on ASEAN

In recent years we have dedicated ourselves to cross-border M&A transactions in order to live up to our clients' expectations.

We have been focusing on Southeast Asia, especially on Singapore, Malaysia, Thailand, Indonesia, Vietnam and Philippines.
