Challenges and Solutions for the Canadian M&A Market

Part 3 of "M&A Momentum in the Americas" 
Webinar On-Demand
In partnership with Mergermarket

While 2020 may have had a slow start for Canadian transactions, the fourth quarter accelerated dramatically. That faster pace seems to be holding true for 2021 as well, including the Inter Pipeline mega-deal in February. But although deal prospects are positive this is also a time of change for the Canadian landscape, as major macro-economic trends from the pandemic to clean investing start to take effect.

In this on-demand webinar, our panel of experts discusses the opportunities in Canadian transactions and dives into the detailed topics needed to take advantage of those opportunities, including:

  • What will drive Canadian M&A in 2021?
  • How are ESG trends impacting sectors like metals and mining?
  • Will we see the use of SPACs take off in Canada? 
  • How is the growth of PE fundraising changing the market?

Democratization of private equity

The emergence of retail investor/public investor money coming into private equity and several investment platforms are really starting to ‘democratize’ access to private equity. Is this connected with the growing number of IPOs that we are seeing for PE firms?
