Breakfast Briefing: 3 May, Brexit and M&A

The Management School held the third session in a series of quarterly 'Breakfast Briefings' on Wednesday 3rd May. Organised in partnership with Professional Liverpool, the Briefing encourages knowledge exchange between researchers at the university and the local business community.

Attendees included colleagues from the Management School as well as guests from the local business sector, who were invited to network before hearing presentations exploring the impact of Brexit on Mergers and Acquisitions (M&A).

Dr Gianluigi Giorgioni, Finance Lecturer at the Management School, approached the subject from a global perspective, using live Bloomberg software data to demonstrate possible outcomes for the M&A markets. 

James Hales, Head of Origination, at NorthEdge Capital then spoke about private equity fund raising in a post Brexit era and the impact of Brexit on overseas acquisition strategies.

The presentations were followed by a Question and Answer session moderated by Stephen Stuart, Professional Liverpool Ambassador.

Director of the Management School, Professor Julia Balogun, said: “The Breakfast Briefings provide an opportunity for researchers and local business professionals to engage with each other to explore today’s pertinent business challenges.”
