“We don’t believe AI is overhyped; we believe it is widely misunderstood,” says Chris Tran, Head of Corporate Finance at North Ridge Partners, in our Merrill InsightTM Video | 2019 Corporate Development Outlook APAC panel discussion.

In this panel, we brought together a China antitrust expert, a renowned regional PE investor and a seasoned regional M&A corporate executive to discuss opportunities, risks and best practices in the thriving APAC region. We also answered critical questions about the M&A outlook and deal risks via live audience polling.
