2015 Banking M&A Outlook

Poised for a rebound

​Following a five-year slowdown in banking sector mergers and acquisitions (M&A), 2015 activity appears to be poised for a rebound across both small and large regional banks. At the same time, the global banking sector is expected to continue its pruning of non-strategic businesses and/or duplicative operational centers, creating opportunities for further business system rationalization and increasing focus on areas of specialization.

  1. Regulatory realities
  2. Interest rate waiting game

  5. Small banks in the spotlight
  6. Non-traditional providers encroach on traditional banking space
  7. Adapting M&A strategies for today's deal environment
