Paul Collins contributed his insights to this issue through an article on competition and foreign investment. “Stability is important for investors [and they] like predictable conditions,” said Paul. “Uncertainty can strangle deal-making and foreign investment.”

Samantha Horn was also featured in an article about the rise in private equity activity in Canada. “With a few high-profile public deals either not going forward or struggling in the past year… and public markets performing in an ‘underwhelming’ manner, more deals have shifted to private equity,” said Samantha. “People tend to want to stay private longer if they can access capital.”
