New York-based Alvarez & Marsal launched its new service, global transaction analytics (GTA). Led globally by Steven Lee, a managing director with the global transaction advisory group, GTA will focus on the development, application and implementation of data analytics to enhance clients’ buy-side and sell-side transactions and capital markets activity.

A&M’s global transaction advisory group is investing heavily in advanced technology and resources worldwide. A&M’s GTA investments will include bolstering the firm’s data analytics “center of excellence” team in Mumbai and adding resources throughout the U.S., Latin America, Europe, India and Asia.

“Data analytics is integral to the future of due diligence and the transaction advisory process,” says Paul Aversano, global head of the transaction advisory group. “The continued development and deployment of these services, under Steven’s leadership, is critical to A&M’s overall growth and competitiveness in the marketplace. GTA’s insights combined with A&M’s operational heritage will maximize value and enhance performance improvement of our clients’ underlying assets.”

Lee has more than 15 years of experience. He counsels private equity firms and other strategic buyers and sellers on applying data analytics and metric transparency to inform investment decision making and performance improvements. Additionally, he has international experience working across a wide variety of industries throughout the world. Prior to his current role with A&M’s global transaction advisory group, Lee worked in the firm’s global disputes and investigations practice where he led the applied data analytics service offering advising clients with investigative analytics, regulatory compliance, and data risk management.
