The article discusses the position of global mergers and acquisitions (M&A) of business enterprises. A lot of deals in the fourth quarter raised M&A levels significantly for 2004. Goldman Sachs remained top of the heap in global announced mergers, while JP Morgan rose to second from fourth. Lehman and Deutsche Bank AG made the most impressive jumps on the top ten-list of investment advisers. UBS, which last year ranked sixth, fell to 10th, while Credit Suisse First Boston Corp. tumbled to 11th place from eighth.
