About the Deloitte M&A Index
The Deloitte M&A Index is a forward looking model that forecasts future global M&A deal volumes and reveals the factors influencing dealmaking. By anticipating M&A deal volumes, we hope to help our clients with their growth strategies.
The M&A Index is created from a wide range of weighted market indicators, including macroeconomic and key market indicators, funding and liquidity, company fundamentals and valuation data. Each quarter, these variables are tested for their statistical significance and relative relationships to M&A volumes.
As a result, we have a dynamic and evolving model which allows Deloitte UK to identify the factors impacting dealmaking and enables us to make a projection of future M&A deal volumes. The Deloitte M&A Index has a 90 per cent accuracy rate dating back to Q1 2008.
