The coronavirus global pandemic has had a considerable impact on global M&A as corporations, financial institutions and funds have sought to adapt and respond to changes in their respective markets. Sentiment in M&A has always been affected by global trends, and while there is now greater uncertainty, M&A offers businesses and investors strategies to navigate new commercial and operational challenges. Projections for 2021 indicate a buoyant M&A market as the global economy returns to a growth trajectory.
