Create a better business future in Strategy and Transactions
If you understand capital and how to make it work harder, then you’ll take a seat at the table of some of the world’s largest, fastest-growing businesses and most influential private equity firms.
Working in diverse, high-performing teams, you’ll enable companies to accelerate their growth by advising on connected capital solutions: Strategy, Corporate finance, Buy and integrate, Sell and separate, and Reshaping results. You can become a powerhouse of transactions’ knowledge and work across some of the most complex deals in the global market.
Drive both economic and social value to help deliver purpose over profit by helping clients to make better capital decisions. You won’t just see the impact, you’ll feel it too.
What is Strategy and Transactions?
How organizations manage their capital today will define their competitive position tomorrow.
In a rapidly changing, increasingly digital and disrupted business environment, EY Strategy and Transactions teams support the flow of capital across borders, bringing new products to market, and helping organizations to reshape themselves for a better future. With global scale and connectivity, we can help clients navigate complexity and build a better working world, by fostering inclusive growth, prosperity and social value.
Strategy and Transactions in practice
To address clients’ toughest challenges, we bring together the right people, in the right locations – diverse thinkers working together to achieve team goals and provide highly integrated, connected solutions.
Across all disciplines and from every angle, we draw on our shared creativity, experience and different perspectives to bring out the best in each other’s ideas.
We guide clients to make better, more informed decisions as they buy, sell, separate, integrate, reshape, restructure or rethink their business strategy. Strategy and Transactions teams bring together professionals across industries and geographies to evaluate clients’ capital agendas, helping us address their most complex issues in an integrated way.
We advised a global healthcare company to sell a non-core company in order to invest in digital. We helped a North African country to become a world leader in solar energy, thanks to our financing services. We advised on the successful merger of two brewing giants in record time. We helped a telecom provider reshape their portfolio to fund future growth opportunities. We used analytics and business modelling to improve the efficiency of one of the busiest ports in the world. These are just a few examples of what EY experience can help accomplish.
With your global business acumen and cultural intelligence, your agility and innovation, and your capacity to deal with ambiguity, you’ll have the chance to work on projects like these and help build a better working world.
We help clients work more efficiently and effectively, and sustain their long-term health. The commercial and economic benefits of what we do are well understood. But the direct impact on communities and societal benefits of what we do are often less well-known.

Driving deals through digital
We help clients work through what their organization is today and what it could be tomorrow by embracing a digital transactions mindset. In Strategy and Transactions, you’ll be part of a team that leads digital change through four key areas:
- Strategy and ecosystem – You’ll help clients identify new partners and M&A targets to support their digital growth.
- Capital and portfolio review – You’ll advise clients on how to get their capital allocation balance right by continuously reviewing their business portfolio so they’re making the right investments and divestments.
- Deal process – You’ll deploy a deep analysis of new types of diligence when evaluating a target. This might include undertaking cyber diligence or applying intellectual property analysis.
- Integration – You’ll work with companies to target multiple digital assets simultaneously, and guide their integration to help deliver maximum value quickly.
