The Deal

We are the leading source for forward-looking intelligence that gives dealmaking professionals the analytic perspective they need embedded in their daily workflow to stay ahead of the competition.

Our Story


In 1999, legendary dealmaker Bruce Wasserstein launched The Deal to report on the news, people and tactics surrounding the deal economy – a set of interrelated deal activities driving corporate growth in a continually changing global market. This followed from his coverage of the RJR-Nabisco merger, from which the inspiration struck to cover the deal economy with the same level of detail, analysis, and excitement as a sports publication. Today, The Deal, along with sister company PrivateRaise, continue Bruce’s legacy by delivering first-in-class intelligence and data.

Through our focus on the core pillars of activism, mergers and acquisitions, private equity and restructuring, we empower both dealmakers and advisers with the tools and information they need to succeed. Across our unique lineup of products, including league tables, special reports, alerts, people coverage, company databases, articles and email newsletters, our team of journalists, data analysts and product developers strive to bring daily coverage and analysis of the deal economy’s people and firms to our diverse audience.
