Deals, disruptions and growth areas in the Americas Conference

6 Dec - 8 Dec 2021

To date, the number of transactions and total value of M&A activity in the Americas in 2021 will signifi cantly outperform M&A activity of the last several years. This session aims to outline what sectors and deal trends drive this growth and will discuss the impact of industries such as technology, finance, retail, and e-commerce, as well as the large number of transactions occurring in healthcare and education, especially in Latin America.

The panel will also review how new investment structures, such as special acquisition companies (SPACs), will change the M&A landscape going forward and how Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) will play a role in driving M&A activity in particular sectors.
