Financial services M&A

Following on from the launch of our comprehensive H1 2020 Global Financial Services (FS) M&A trends report in September 2020, we are pleased to share with you an update which reflects back on our findings in light of the data for the full year 2020.

Our updated report uses insights gained from the full year 2020 data and reflects on our previous findings from H1 2020. The report also sets out our views on market trends in, and expectations for, deal making in the broader FS sector in the near future.


“FS M&A has been on an upward trend over the past few years. Whilst last year took a hit on the whole (based on deal volumes) much of that can be attributed to the impacts of the pandemic, with many deals pausing during the lockdown. The ingredients for a busy year this year are all there and we expect this year to be extremely busy – especially in the insurance and asset management sectors.“
