The Future of the Deal
Winds of change
Our latest edition of The Future of the Deal, delves into the headwinds and tailwinds we expect will drive global M&A activity in 2019. The report offers perspectives to help businesses carefully navigate through market pressures, against a backdrop of rising levels of economic uncertainty.
The last five years have witnessed an unprecedented bull run in global M&A markets and 2018 was the fifth consecutive year that deal values crossed the $3 trillion mark. Whilst there are signs of a slowdown in some markets, indeed our M&A Index prediction model forecasts a 4-7% decline in global M&A volumes in Q1 2019 over the previous quarter, M&A activities will not become dormant. We expect dealmakers will heighten their focus on clear actions to identify, drive value and mitigate risks from deals.
