As global M&A activity continues to increase, many financial institutions are looking at their Asia Pacific strategy. To help our clients navigate and understand the varying laws and regulations, we are pleased to present our new guide Financial Institutions M&A in Asia Pacific – Ten things to know, part of our key Asia Pacific publication series.
The guide highlights the issues for M&A transactions in the banking and securities sector in the region. We provide an overview of each jurisdiction’s regulatory regime – including the regulator, key laws, foreign direct investment controls and controller regimes (shareholders and management). We identify whether branches of foreign institutions are permitted, or only locally incorporated companies, and set out the associated capital rules for those entities. We also look at the market trends affecting M&A transactions – in particular, the scope of due diligence, contractual protections and integration issues.
