In collaboration with The Boston Consulting Group and RBC Capital Markets, our Canadian Special Situations Team has released a white paper offering a fresh perspective on defensive strategies addressing the spectre of shareholder activism.

Hear the key take-away messages from this white paper first-hand from the authors in our interactive webinar. The authors argue that in developing a sound defense against shareholder activism, good governance practices are vital, but should not be relied upon as a company’s sole fortification. The most effective defense is to create sustainable shareholder value. This value creation should be facilitated not by enhancements in oversights, controls and disclosure, but rather through a board’s more active engagement with management, strengthened by a more fulsome understanding of the company’s stakeholders and its strategic alternatives.
