M&A Advice: Is it worth the price?



When first entering any industry, it takes a lot to learn the in and outs. In your informational and formal interviews with bankers, you need to be able to speak in the language and terminology of the industry. One of the biggest areas of investment banking is mergers and acquisitions (M&A). The picture to the left comes from the Deal Book by New York Times. This graphic shows the number of M&A deals a specific bank has performed, deal size, and performance of the company relative to their sector. This is a great article to read to get another perspective on banking. When you read this article come up with questions or points you can speak to when interviewing and meeting with bankers. These questions could be great to ask at the end of the interview. The link to this article is found below.

I also recommend you check out this video on YouTube from Thomson Financial. It gives a current up-to-date review of M&A activity this year. It is another great way to stay on top of the markets while learning more about banking.
