We provide regular Deloitte mergers and acquisitions updates on the UK M&A market, including industry M&A outlooks and key M&A deal trends. Through videos and articles, we look at how hot topics, such as inflation, digitalisation, Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) and the Energy Transition, are impacting M&A activity.
We have seen a drop in deal values and volumes in 2023, as caution in the market continues. Despite macroeconomic instability, we observe M&A drivers in some industries, such as Financial Services. Crucially, less volatility in the debt markets will be vital if we are to see a revival in M&A transactions in 2024.
