8th Annual Bank M&A Symposium Returns To Washington D.C. In September

Sep 13, 2016 / 03:00 PM
Washington, D.C.

The 8th Annual Bank M&A Symposium, formerly the SNL Bank M&A Symposium, will be held in Washington, D.C., on September 22nd through 23rd. Held in partnership with Sullivan & Cromwell, this is the preeminent executive conference for community and regional banks focused on their growth or exit strategies. The event features the industry’s most influential commercial bankers, advisers, regulators and investors sharing their perspectives on the overall environment and strategic growth opportunities for banks.

This year, you will find fresh and expanded content, as we explore our theme: Buy, build, exit or partner. In addition to discussing trends and best practices in whole-bank, branch and business line M&A, we will also address ways banks can achieve profitable organic growth. If seeking a merger partner is the most viable option for a bank, we will cover this topic as well. We won’t focus on high level trends or recent surveys, but rather on tactics banks can take back to their institution and implement right away. S&P Global Market Intelligence’s and Sullivan & Cromwell’s extensive experience and commitment to working with superregional, regional and community banks allow the conference to deliver high quality content to banks of any size.

Past attendees praise the event for providing relevant, timely and usable intelligence delivered by high quality speakers, backed by data and analytics you won’t find at other events. While the content is unparalleled, the conference also provides ample time to network with executives from across the banking industry.

Sessions topics include:                                                  

  • Deal Trends
  • A Conversation with Key Stakeholders: How Investors View the Industry Today
  • Demystifying Fairness Opinions: What They Are and What They Aren’t
  • A Fireside Chat with the Fed
