2020 predictions: what to expect in global M&A next year

Welcome to the final M&A monitor of 2019. As with previous years, our Q4 edition looks ahead to what we expect to influence deal activity over the next 12 months.

This year we’ve sought the views of some of our new partners in the US, as well as touching on the prospects for Japanese and Chinese outbound investment and PE megadeals. It’s apparent that successful deal-making in 2020 will require bold decisions and careful strategizing – but for those that can navigate challenging market conditions, the opportunities are there.
