Bank M&A Deals Surged In May

The three largest deals of the year have all been announced since May 14, with a total deal value exceeding $7 billion – the largest total since August 2012.

We expect more big bank deals going forward after lawmakers finished passing a regulatory reform bill that provides breathing room for a number of growing banks.
