12 most mindblowing acquisitions in recent history

Interesting discussion going on at 12Most regarding the most mindblowing acquisitions in history.

Obviously, the fervor around Facebook’s intention to buy photo app, Instagram for $1B prompted this list but I thought it would be a good time to get your feedback into what you think were the most influential mergers in the financial space.

To get things started, I added the $15 billion BlackRock-Barclays Global (BGI) merger which essentially made BlackRock the largest asset manager on the planet but also gave them the crown jewel in the ETF space, which just keeps growing like a weed.

What do you think are notable mergers in our space?
