There next few months will see a 20% increase in M&A activity, says new research from the Mergers and Acquisitions Research Centre at Cass. Anna Faelten, senior researcher at MARC, explains that companies are increasingly entering into joint ventures as business managers try to share the risk of new projects with others in their market.
Anna explains the research in this week’s Cass Talks interview. Cass Talks is a series of free video and audio interviews uploaded weekly each Wednesday. Alex Ritson is away so this week’s episode is presented by Ben Sawtell, from the Cass’s Corporate Communications team.
The interviews are an opportunity to hear Cass faculty give their perspective on current business and finance news stories, global issues affecting the business world and new research coming out of the School.
