Due Diligence is the FT’s essential daily briefing on corporate finance, mergers and acquisitions and private equity, written by a team of our top-deal reporters around the world.

Experts from the accounting, banking, consultancy, hedge fund, legal, PR and private equity sectors will meet and network with leading M&A specialists, corporate strategists and general counsels from leading businesses. The exclusive events are created and curated by FT editors, featuring world-class speakers who will provide unique insights and fresh perspectives on long term issues facing the world of dealmaking.
