In One Slide, Barclays Shows Why There's Going To Be A Surge In Mergers & Acquisitions

Great slide from Barclays showing the two reasons there will be a lot more M&A volume.

1: M&A volume picks up when volatility is low. Volatility has been collapsing.

2: Yields on assets are very high compared to funding costs (high-yield borrowing costs). That also makes M&A more compelling.
