WATCH: “There’ll be a lot of demergers”

Companies are shifting from acquisition to divestment mode, but opportunities will remain. Four asset class professionals offer insights in this two-minute video.

Over the last few years, the M&A market has been characterised by companies hunting for acquisitions. That may be about to change. We spoke with four senior executives – Michael Romanek of Rise Partners, Jon Herbert of Beechbrook Capital, Garrett Ryan of TwinBrook Capital Partners and William Fitzpatrick of Raymond James Financial International – about terms and conditions, the likelihood of a downturn and why a conventional secondary market is unlikely to develop. This two-minute video was shot at PDI’s fifth anniversary party.
