  • In collaboration with its research partners, Credit Suisse and Ernst & Young, the M&A Research Centre (MARC) at Cass Business School provides its second annual report (July 2012) on the maturity for M&A purposes of countries worldwide. The Cass MARC Maturity Index illustrates each country's ability to attract and sustain M&A activity, as well as identifying areas where improvement is needed. The index rates 148 countries according to their regulatory and political, economic and financial, technological and socio-economic environments, as well as their level of assets and infrastructure. It looks at the attractiveness of each country for domestic and inward deals and does not address external acquisitions for companies based in that country.

The study followed 1,559 companies for the 1,000 days after their first day of trading.
