Merger Market

This series of images were published as part of an advertising campaign in the Financial Times which featured on the front page as well as throughout the publication. The idea was to depict various historical figures that had made a negative life changing mistake that could have possibly been somehow avoided with the right advice. Merger Market provide information about mergers and acquisitions in the business market and can help businesses avoid making costly mistakes.

The image of Nick Leeson was never published because he was the only character depicted who is still alive. Merger Market feared using his likeness might have repercussions.
