About Deals Strategy & Operations

At PwC and Strategy&, we continue to invest world-wide in further strengthening our top-tier strategy and operations consulting capabilities on the back of acquisitions of Booz & Company and PRTM. In Asia, an area of particular focus is our Deals team i.e. our Mergers & Acquisition practice.
The Deals Strategy & Operations (DSO) team provides strategic and operational advice across the deal continuum from setting the deal strategy to post-deal execution and value realization. Examples of services we undertake include advising funds on strategic decisions, supporting businesses in conducting commercial due diligence on potential target acquisitions, developing business plans and corporate strategies, implementing merger integrations and carve-outs as well as designing and executing post-deal value creation programs.
Our team includes a diverse mix of profiles with people with relevant strategy, investment, and operations experience combined with deep industry expertise. Our clients include regional and international corporates, leading private equity houses, private businesses, major banks and investment funds, and government entities.
The team is continuing to grow rapidly and we are therefore seeking experienced hires across multiple locations in Asia.
