The Real Deal

The Real Deal


This podcast gives dealmakers perspectives on mergers and acquisitions (M&A) trends, the biggest deals and insight into the latest technology news and trends. Listen to learn about best practices from deal professionals and industry thought leaders.

Today, we’re joined by Ken Bisconti, co-head of SS&C Intralinks, who provides an exclusive preview of the SS&C Intralinks Deal Flow Predictor for Q4 2022.

The Deal Flow Predictor forecasts mergers and acquisitions (M&A) volume up to six months in advance of the market announcement.

Through Intralinks’ insights into thousands of deals that come across our global desks annually, Intralinks has an early view of most M&A deals that are coming to market. We utilize that proprietary data to forecast anticipated volume, as will be announced by Refinitiv. Our proprietary insight into this deal flow gives us a view into global activity and anticipated volume six months before deal announcement, as six months is the average time for due diligence on our platform and before market announcement of those transactions.

Listen, and you’ll learn about:

– Review of M&A activity for the first three quarters of the year
– Data-driven M&A global market prediction for Q4 2022
– Six-month regional outlook for Asia Pacific, Europe, the Middle East and Africa, North America and Latin America
– Trends and opportunities

Dealcast is presented by Mergermarket and SS&C Intralkinks.
