Investment Matters

A race to the finish line.

Season’s greetings to all of our readers!

So much for markets ‘winding down’ for Christmas.

It seems like with Australians hesitant to cross state borders for the holidays, it’s been all hands on deck and full steam ahead for corporates (no “silly season” just yet!).

And it looks like the year will finish much like it started: with plenty of merger and acquisition activity.

Over the past few weeks, we have another mega-cap transaction (CSL’s US$11.7bn acquisition of Switzerland’s Vifor Pharma), takeover bids lodged by two portfolio companies and the conclusion of transactions for Intega and Cardno.

We detail news across the portfolio in a ‘pocket version’ of Investment Matters.
