hen it comes to mergers and acquisitions banking this year, you can’t beat Goldman Sachs.

At least not in terms of revenues, or fees earned.

That’s according to preliminary data from Dealogic on the first 9 months of the year, which found that Goldman Sachs had earned $US2 billion in revenue to date. That’s a 12.3% market share.

Rivals JPMorgan and Morgan Stanley aren’t even close, coming in at $US1.31 billion (8.1% of the total) and $US1.24 billion (7.7%), respectively.

Of note, boutique banks Lazard and Centerview Partners also made the top 10 list along with the usual global titans.

A lot of the M&A revenue to date has come from the healthcare industry, totaling around $US2.8 billion to date, according to Dealogic.

Here’s the table:
