Monthly M&A Review – December
2022 has been a grim year: war, sky-high inflation, an energy crisis, a cost-of-living crisis, a stock market correction and increasing fears of recession. Even these latter fears failed to stop surging inflation and interest rates from sending bond yields soaring for much of 2022. On the upside, we believe the starting point for 2023 is much better than in 2022.
monthly M&A review – November
As we move into the final month of 2022, bond and equity markets have recently been able to recover some of the steep losses that occurred in the first nine months of the year. Despite inflation remaining persistently high, we expect it to start easing as the economy slows, the labour market weakens and supply chain pressures continue to ease.
