M&A activity has already blown past the $2 trillion mark in a record-breaking 2021

So far in 2021, global mergers and acquisitions have totaled a record $2.4 trillion, up 158% from the same period last year, according to a Refinitiv Deals Intelligence report out Wednesday.

“As the surging stock market continues to drive confidence, and interest rates remain at record lows making borrowing for acquisitions cheap, deal making continues at pace,” Lucille Jones, a Deals Intelligence analyst at Refinitiv, wrote alongside the report.
