66% of financial services companies say target selection can be improved.

While most acquisitions were successful for most executives interviewed, they could have been executed better to create even more value. This can be achieved through better target selection, pre-deal M&A blueprints, talent retention and cultural integration planning, and Day One readiness.

The findings of our Creating value beyond the deal: financial services report reinforce our perspective that an effective value creation approach for this industry must focus on:

  • Looking beyond short-term cost synergies and be more strategically focussed
  • Understanding the importance of culture and retaining top talent
  • Having a value-creation plan with Day One readiness
