Deal Making in Uncertain Times - A Deep Dive

Join us for this webinar - now available on demand. 

Our 2020 Deal Makers Sentiment Survey findings revealed a broadly positive trajectory, with expectations for growth widely held, particularly in M&A.  At the time we surveyed the deal making community as 2019 came to an end, M&A professionals within corporates for example proved to be the most bullish, expecting a market growth rate of 7.4% during 2020, compared with a 1.3% expected contraction for 2019. But there was always a risk of derailment. Without doubt, a Coronavirus-free world was an optimistic place.

  • Has the global pandemic already had an impact on the M&A and Capital Markets scene and what is the data telling us?
  • Are deals volumes decreasing or is this an expectation for H2 or 2021?
  • What are the key Q1 highlights in Investment Banking?
