If you are an avid reader of fintech m&a investment news and analyses as we are, you may have noticed an interesting shift in tone over the past year. (And I’m not referring to national politics.)

Dear Clients and Friends, Our latest report on the m&a trends, transactions and values in the dozen+ sectors of the information technology universe that we follow and sometimes lead can be found here.

Healthcare IT, Healthcare Newsletter, Newsletter 0 Comments

Here are a few of our observations. 1. Most vendors appeared cautiously optimistic.
