PitchBook November 05, 2015
Through the first half of 2015, private equity deal flow in Canada proceeded near record highs, due in part to U.S. investors ramping up activity, according to our 1H 2015 Canada Breakdown Report and the latest data. With PE numbers ebbing gently in the U.S. on the whole, even as Canada's PE activity remains strong, it seemed timely to discuss not only the drivers of that disparity but the Canadian PE investment scene in general, as well as its future prospects.
PitchBook's Garrett Black and Nizar Tarhuni recently sat down with Mario Nigro from Stikeman Elliott, a Canadian corporate law firm, to discuss the current Canadian private equity environment. This spotlight video takes a quick look at some of the key points from the discussion, which also touched upon the outlook for particular Canadian sectors and broader economic trends that are shaping and will shape the market over the next few quarters.
