Navigating cross-border M&A: Investing in a fragmented landscape

Monetary tightening and geopolitical tensions have investors reviewing their risk appetite for cross-border transactions, and stricter protections on foreign investment is expected to have a negative impact on dealmaking strategies, with Canada, UK and Australia becoming favored destinations. Experiences with the pandemic, global supply-chain issues, and the deglobalization trend means dealmakers must have conviction and place more emphasis on due diligence, compliance, and post-deal integration. Our panel of experienced investors outline the driving forces for cross-border activity and discuss the global challenges and hotspots.

  • Which regions are seeing the most cross-border activity, and how and why has this changed?
  • What are the leading target sectors for US acquirors – mining, computers and electronics?
  • What are some of the regulatory issues that dealmakers need to be aware of, such as cybersecurity, political tensions, and ESG compliance?
  • What specific geopolitical risks and supply-chain challenges can be mitigated through dealmaking?
