Navigating Distressed Markets

Canada’s slowing economy and sectoral disruption

In the wake of an economic downturn, are you prepared for the challenges, and potential opportunities, it may bring?

Rapid technological advancements, international trade disputes, shifts in consumer buying habits, and a revolution in the global energy markets indicate that the next economic slow-down will be different from the last. This impact will be felt unevenly by Canada’s various industries and by different groups of stakeholders within them.

In a world characterized by transformative structural disruptions, some companies may struggle to emerge unscathed, while others may thrive. This will depend, not only on the industry they operate in, but also on their relative position within that industry and/or their appetite for investment.

The report explores:

  • How to plan for resiliency in assessing their business models and capital efficiency
  • How this economic slow-down is different from previous recessions
  • Sectors of the Canadian economy who will face particular risk
  • Tactics that Canadian organizations and their counterparties will need to develop to identify potential vulnerabilities and ensure resilience.
