European Financial Services M&A Insight

May 2010

Although the overall value of deals in the European financial services sector continued to be subdued in the first quarter of 2010, there was a steady flow of smaller and mid-market transactions. As we anticipated in our last edition, restructuring within the banking sector is continuing and private equity interest in various aspects of financial services is increasing.

The quarterly report aims to provide perspectives on the recent trends and future developments in the M&A market, including analysis of the latest transactions and insights into emerging investment opportunities.
