Cross-border hotspots

As China M&A activity tumbled in the first half of 2022 (recording USD186.6 billion – down 28.9% from last year), other geographies in Asia are proving to be more appealing for dealmakers. For example, India recorded USD121.5 billion in deals for the first half of 2022 according to Dealogic data. Southeast Asia has also risen in prominence over the last few years, becoming a great destination for strategic buyers and private equity due to its proximity and cultural similarities.  Our panel of experienced investors and dealmakers outline the driving forces for cross-border activity and discuss the hotspots in the region.

  • Is India likely to overtake China in M&A activity in the coming years?
  • What types of opportunity are there in Southeast Asia?
  • Are there any bright spots in North Asia?
  • What are the key challenges for executing cross-border deals this year?
