Research themes

At MARC, we explore the emerging issues in M&A - globally and across all sectors and industries. We also analyse specific deals.

Our work balances reviews of current trends with anticipation of future developments. By using case studies and lessons from the past, we help M&A practitioners and their clients to identify promising opportunities, avoid trouble spots and increase the chance of doing deals.
