Mergers and acquisitions activity has picked up in the last 12 months, as sentiment has finally allowed more deals. Luke Cummings, CIO at Harvest Lane Asset Management, explains that M&A tends to increase later in the cycle as confidence is essential for successful deals. But where will the next one be?
