Goodmans Presents: Private Equity in Canada – The Real Deal
7:30 - 8:00 am - Breakfast/Networking
8:00 - 9:00 am - Panel Discussion
From the peak of mega deals in 2007, to the recovery from the financial crisis, the Canadian private equity industry has witnessed much volatility over the past decade. Even in the face of these macro forces, private equity has successfully attracted record levels of capital and delivered robust returns to its stakeholders. In 2016, this increasingly popular asset class will continue to face a kaleidoscope of influences, requiring its participants to develop adaptive strategies to ensure their continued success.
Our expert panel will discuss the Canadian private equity landscape, including:
- The volatility in the global and Canadian markets
- The new realities of deploying capital
- The quest to maximize returns
- What lies ahead for Canada’s PE players
