Mergers & Acquisitions

Banks and financial services firms have traditionally expanded through mergers and acquisitions to stay competitive. While this growth strategy is effective, its complexity should not be underestimated.


Poorly executed M&A have seen many banks left with a collection of disparate businesses that are confronted by control, performance-management and regulatory challenges. The resulting loss in shareholder value can be staggering.
