The volume of M&A transactions in the world reached $2.5 trillion

In the first half of 2018, the volume of mergers and acquisitions in the world reached a maximum of $2.5 trillion for this period thanks to a number of very large transactions in the US, the Financial Times reported. The growth of the index was due to the acceleration of the global economic recovery, the high level of business confidence in most countries of the world, and the reduction of the tax burden in the US, which freed up funds for the acquisition of assets. Co-founder of the consulting company Centerview Partners, Blair Effon, commented: “Technological shocks remain a big factor driving large M&A. Large-scale technology changes are forcing companies in all industries to creatively approach strategic combinations.” The Financial Times writes that the 20 largest deals of the half-year stand over 760 billion dollars.
