  Abstract:

  It has become apparent in recent decades that acquirers’ financial advisors also participate in financing the M&A they advise on. These advisor-led syndicated loans have unusually high spreads. The advisor’s dual role (advisory and financing) also seems to reduce the acquirer’s M&A announcement effect. All of this could reflect a conflict of interest where financial advisors would abet corporate overinvestment to share in rents arising from managerial empire building, undermining the information production and certification roles of banks in loan financing. However, our analysis reveals that post-M&A underperformance is absent for these acquirers, and their need for external finance to complete ambitious acquisitions justifies premium pricing in advisor dual-role lending. The investment banks act as last-resort lenders in these big-ticket deals.

He has published papers in high quality academic journals including the Journal of Business and JFQA.

He is also working on how financial intermediaries such as financial advisors help mitigate market imperfection.
