Personal Finance. Money. Investing.

Finance Monthly is pleased to announce that its 2021 Finance Monthly M&A Awards edition has now been published.

Every year the Finance Monthly M&A Awards recognise the achievements of the world’s most prominent dealmakers, management teams, financiers and professional advisers whose hard work over the past 12 months deserves to be celebrated. The first eight months of 2021 have seen a focus on recalibrating strategy and accelerated adoption of technology as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. With GDP and CPI rates promising growth, however, the hopes for strong economic recovery are emerging and the appetite for mergers and acquisitions is intensifying. It is now more than ever that the firms and professionals who operate in the M&A sector need recognition, as well as an acknowledgement that their efforts are never going unnoticed.

At Finance Monthly, we are extremely proud to be able to provide a platform that celebrates the M&A professionals who work tirelessly to ensure the smooth completion of complex deals and exceed their clients’ expectations every day.

Finance Monthly would like to thank all contributors and participants in the 2021 Finance Monthly M&A Awards. Congratulations to our winners and finalists.

You can't compare rent to a mortgage payment. This way of thinking about the rent versus buy decision is extremely flawed. Comparing a mortgage payment to rent is not an apples to apples comparison. In order to properly assess the rent versus buy decision, we need to compare the total *unrecoverable costs* of renting to the total unrecoverable costs of owning.

That may sound like a complicated task, but I have boiled it down to a simple calculation.
