Taking over, buying or selling a business is one of the most important decisions any manager or entrepreneur will make. The decisions you make around the process are critical – and it’s vital that you understand all the nuances of M&A.
The Centre for Mergers, Acquisitions and Buyouts has extensive expertise on everything to do with mergers and acquisitions, ranging from deal origination to completion, and from financing to integration.

It’s a knowledge-driven space where members and partners meet to share insights and experiences. They influence ground-breaking research and have privileged access to it. Join us to take part in networking, round-table events, seminars and workshops.

At the heart of our mergers and acquisition research is the annual M&A Monitor, which tracks trends in the Belgian mergers and acquisition market.

This annual research keeps its finger on the pulse of trends and challenges in the Belgian merger and acquisition market. The survey of Belgian merger and acquisition experts and advisers examines experiences and deals in the M&A market. It also explores expectations for the coming year.
