Headroom for buy-side M&A deals
A thought leadership project dedicated to psychological aspects of buy-side M&A deals.
Dealmakers’ psychology inevitably comes into play during transactions, whether it’s the additional pressure and stress felt by buyers having to balance the competing demands of the ‘day job’ alongside an intensive transaction process, or a first-time buyer’s nervousness about asking the right questions during commercial due diligence. This is why we have created Headroom.
