Sector Focus
Our report presents an optimistic outlook for the global economy and dealmaking in the coming years, driven by a reduced threat to free trade and investment flows, and positive macroeconomic trends.
The experience of recent years demonstrates we cannot take positive conditions for granted. In several key economies, particularly the US and other countries at risk of protectionist measures, dealmakers will need to continue to make the case for liberal trade and investment frameworks. Given the rise of equity valuations in recent years, dealmakers may also need to apply greater scrutiny to the financial case for transactions.
