Survey: M&A Fees Rose Sharply in 2010

Recently, the Boston Consulting Group issued a report entitled “Riding the Next Wave in M&A: Where Are the Opportunities to Create Value?” that, among other things, notes that transaction fees rose sharply in 2010, from an average of 0.27 percent of deal value in 2009 to 0.60 percent. This was higher than in the boom times between 2004 and 2008, when deal fees averaged around 0.4 percent.
