A world first for research
The Mergers and Acquisitions Research Centre (MARC) at Cass is a real breakthrough - the first time a major business school has established a focused centre for research into the global M&A industry.
At MARC, the academic excellence of Cass meets the expertise of M&A bankers, lawyers, consultants, accountants and other key players. With its proximity to the City of London, Cass is perfectly placed to maintain close contacts with many such professionals.
The result has been and is new, cutting-edge insights into the entire M&A field, from deal origination to completion, from financing to integration, from emerging markets to the boardrooms of the world's largest companies.
A valuable addition
MARC is one of over 20 research centres at Cass, which consistently achieves the highest independent ratings. A number of corporations, regulators, professional services firms, exchanges and universities are already using MARC for swift access to the latest research and practical ideas.
The Centre is proud to have its Senior Sponsors, Credit Suisse, EY and White & Case, and Sponsors, Ardian, Mergermarket and Towers Watson, as research partners.
MARC's Academic Director, Dr Anh Tran's latest paper, 'Motivating Monitors: The importance of institutional investors' portfolio weights' has been published in the Journal of Financial Economics.
