In this edition of Founders’ Private Capital Markets Update, our team looks at the key factors impacting the current state of the M&A market. While strong by historical standards, the M&A market has slowed significantly from a record pace last year.
Our update touches on multiple causes of the market slowdown, including:
- Market anticipation of a recession
- The Federal Reserve raising interest rates to curb inflation
- Heightened investment scrutiny
- Increased cost of capital
- Defensive market tenor
If you or someone you know have questions regarding anything discussed, or the general private capital marketplace, please feel free to reach out to Ken Hirsch, Managing Director of Founders’ Capital Solutions Practice.
