FT Live Presents Discussion on The US M&A Landscape in a Shifting Policy Environment

Sarah Morgan, co-head of the firm’s M&A and Capital Markets practice, will join business leaders from Citi, Datasite and Arena Investors in a free virtual discussion hosted by the Financial Times.

Global M&A deal volume has continued its meteoric rise throughout the pandemic to new frenzied highs with $513bn of transactions agreed in the first half of 2021, with US deal volume accounting for much of global deal making.

At the same time, an accelerated pandemic recovery in the US under Joe Biden is leading to inflationary fears, with several economists predicting a more hawkish monetary policy from the US Federal Reserve in the coming months. Fiscal policy is also on the agenda, as a new global corporate tax accord seeks to boost corporate contributions to the recovery.

The FT, in partnership with Datasite, will provide a key forward looking market outlook for the US M&A market and explore the risks and opportunities that this new deal making environment poses.
