Developed market investments into emerging markets hit 10-year low, but emerging market deals with one another show strong growth
KPMG International’s Cross-Border Deals Tracker shows a continuing decline over the latter half of 2015 in the volume of M&A activity involving acquirers in developed markets and targets in emerging markets (D2E).
Between July and December 2015, the number of D2E deals fell by 3 percent, reaching its lowest level in 10 years. The figures follow a disappointing first-half to the year as well, leaving the yearly total 9 percent down on the previous 12 months.
