A number of catalysts could generate a steady pickup in M&A deal volume during 2014: Larger banks are looking to retool their product mix and geographic footprint, regional/midsized banks are seeking asset growth, small banks are looking for scale and a rising interest rate environment makes deals more palatable across market segments.

However, a lack of substantive targets and a longer regulatory approval process could slow M&A’s momentum, especially for large banks. This paper takes an in-depth look at the following factors which are expected to influence deal activity in the coming year:

  • New regulatory paradigm  
  • Rising interest rate environment
  • Search for capital-efficient growth 
  • Geographic and business line rationalization
  • Branch strategy 
  • Valuation 
  • Technology and data for business generation 
  • Tax
  • M&A Readiness
