The US M&A Landscape in a Shifting Policy Environment

On-Demand Webinar
in partnership with Financial Times Live

Global M&A deal volume has continued its meteoric rise throughout the pandemic to new frenzied highs with $513bn of transactions agreed in the first half of 2021, with US deal volume accounting for much of global deal making.

At the same time, an accelerated pandemic recovery is leading to inflationary fears, with several economists predicting a more hawkish monetary policy from the US Federal Reserve in the coming months. Fiscal policy is also on the agenda, as a new global corporate tax accord seeks to boost corporate contributions to the recovery. 

Join Datasite, in partnership with FT, during this on-demand webinar as this esteemed panel of industry experts analyze the US dealmaking outlook amid new macroeconomic challenges.

Topics include:

  • Will the pace of deal making keep up with the speed of predicted US economic growth?
  • How prepared are corporate acquirers for a rise in funding costs?
  • Will the pandemic recovery accelerate consumer trends in sectors, such as in technology, or will we see a return to pre-pandemic buying norms?

The program included audience polling and Q&A.
