Our 2021 M&A outlook surveyed the island of Ireland’s leading executives and M&A advisers for their insights on trends for the year ahead.

The results show that a significant majority (95%) of respondents both north and south expect Irish M&A activity for 2021 to be at or above 2020 levels, a 5% increase in confidence from last year, despite an extraordinarily challenging economic environment.

The appetite for pursuing M&A activity in the island in 2021 is also very strong, with 86% of respondents intending to pursue M&A opportunities this year. This activity will be enabled by readily available funding from private equity and corporates, as well as the quality of assets available in Ireland both north and south.
