M&A research from Bureau van Dijk featured in Fortune Italy

Francisco Fisher

M&A research from Bureau van Dijk was featured in a cover story by Fortune Italy that identified investment trends in Italy for 2018.

The main points of the article focus on how Italian companies, including startups, are increasing their operations abroad—while businesses within the country are seeing less investment than previous years. Fortune Italy compares these findings with a decline in capital and continued difficulties for the Italian labour market.
