Global Dealmakers: Cross-border M&A in 2021


After an abysmal first half for M&A in 2020, dealmakers roared back into action. But will the momentum be sustained? We look at what a strong M&A finish means for 2021.

Markets, confidence and corporate strategies were shaken last year as governments the world over 
struggled to contain the spread of COVID-19. At their nadir, M&A deals sank to lows not seen since the 
global financial crisis. However, with the announcement of vaccines and government stimulus to combat 
the pandemic, M&A activity and overall market sentiment improved, marked by a sharp uptick in deals 
that progressed through the latter half of 2020. 

But which market movements are visible today? Which regions form the key markets for M&A activities in 2020? And which sectors contributed to deal activity globally despite the pandemic? 

The global dealmakers report gives an overview of M&A  activities from 2020 while anticipating the trends that will shape 2021.
