Darrow Associates has distilled these ‘must-practices,’ into a short, concise task list.”

Video: Experts agree – interest rate changes won’t slow M&A momentum

We know deals can have as many moving parts as a Swiss watch. Controlling all the factors ( ie: the paperflow within our virtual data room – see demo here ) is a critical function for the working group. But what about factors you CANNOT EVER control… like the risk of today’s low interest rates vanishing. 

Our experts discuss that question in this short video clip. You’ll be relieved at what they predict. 

Click on the video above to watch the panel at our Mergermarket event, M&A and Private Equity 2015: Keeping up the momentum.
