    Panel: Innovation in the M&A process

    A movement so impactful that no one can afford to ignore - disruptive technology and digitalisation are revolutionising the M&A lifecycle and allow dealmakers to conduct deals faster, with greater accuracy and security whilst remaining compliant. Advancing technologies such as AI and machine learning can be utilised to manage the rapidly growing data and documents available during the M&A and due diligence process. The implementation of advanced analytics tools that offer deeper insights into potential targets and risks can also give dealmakers a competitive edge. 

    This panel will explore how leading players in Southwestern Europe, particularly Portugal, in deploying technology in the M&A process, lessons they have learned and the trends that shouldn't be missed.
