The author reflects on the comment from a banker for being overlooked his firm as an adviser during the M&A deal. He said that during the deal many competing banks were arguing on who deserved the credit on specific transactions and for mega buyouts and M&A transactions. He added that the problem lies on the data providers that run the league tables. Thus, the author stresses that their chief goal is accuracy on the informations.
