New State of M&A: South Korea

For all the advances in recent years, just how digitally mature and technologically sophisticated is the M&A, due diligence and asset marketing process in South Korea?

Moreover, what does the process look like today, and how might technology and accelerating digitization change the dealmaking process over the coming years?    

These are some of the key questions we wanted to investigate and answer in this research, which involved surveying 100+ South Korean M&A practitioners from corporates, private equity firms, investments banks, and law and professional services firms, for their views on the subject.

What's Inside?

  • Analysis: Digital maturity of South Korea M&A and technological innovations

The respondents, who form part of a global survey of 2,235 practitioners, not only provide insight on the current and future state of the dealmaking process, their responses reveal some interesting regional similarities and differences in opinion.
