M&As in an uncertain world: How to manage the risks to growth

Tuesday, 17 October
11 a.m. EDT / 4 p.m. BST

Join the FiscalNote Global Intelligence division for a special webinar where we will outline the three-step process to reduce risk when considering M&A deals or entering new markets.

The challenges of entering new markets via a merger or acquisition (M&A) are evolving. Tensions have escalated dramatically between Russia, China and the West and regional competition and conflicts have grown, exacerbated by more frequent environmental crises related to climate change.

This turbulent landscape requires an advanced approach to M&A due diligence, which goes well beyond traditional legal concerns. In this webinar – the first in a new series on optimising growth and mitigating risk in an uncertain world – FiscalNote’s advisory specialists will explore how you can incorporate analysis of geopolitical risk when considering an M&A deal, and best protect your operations and reputation.
