Gary Jack, Country President for Chubb in South Africa said:
“South African corporates invested 55% more funds into outbound mergers and acquisitions in 2016 than in 2013, owing to an increasing appetite to look abroad for investments.* South Africa is home to an ever increasing number of multi-national businesses, diversified across the African continent and markets worldwide.”
