Video: M&A in financial services: what’s next?

An informal discussion on drivers and issues for financial services M&A

Against the backdrop of complexities that the financial services industry is currently facing, what M&A opportunities are developing for investors in the sector?

Exploring trends from their Q4 Torys Quarterly article, Ricco Bhasin and Andrew Gray discuss the latest in financial services M&A now that we are seeing dealmaking return, including:

  • decision-making in the industry around capital deployment in the face of market opportunity and finding the right valuations for the right assets;
  • how many other buyers, in addition to banks and insurance companies, are targeting the financial services, with deals becoming trickier in light of the pandemic, and in some cases requiring novel structuring around pricing and other deal terms; and
  • how financial services entities considering M&A during the pandemic can balance urgency with care when approaching opportunities or pressures.

Play the 14-minute video below and stay tuned for our February webinar on M&A in the financial services industry.
