SYNTHESIS

Moderator, Richard Taffet (Morgan, Lewis, & Bockius) introduced the panelists and began the discussion by pointing to two financial sector developments that may implicate antitrust issues: (1) the ever-increasing reliance on new technological solutions for delivery of products and services throughout the value chain; and (2) the increasing non-horizontal merger activity involving firms seeking to leverage their complementary strengths to either strengthen their position in one market or gain share another market. He identified MasterCard/Finicity and Visa/Plaid as examples of non-horizontal mergers that may raise antitrust concerns.
