Political Risk

“ Political risk is the danger that the actions of governments might reduce the cash-flows that investors expect from their investments. ”

– The Economist magazine


Doing business in Toronto?

Toronto will elect a new municipal government in October, 2018.

How will the 2018 municipal election affect your business opportunities in Canada’s largest city? Will a change in mayor signal a change in policy that could affect the value of your investments? How will the make-up of Toronto City Council make your business more – or less– profitable?

  • Which candidates are best-aligned with the interests of your business?
  • How will residential & commercial property taxes trend from 2018 to 2022?
  • How will your corporate plans fit with the new council’s priorities?
  • Who do you need to know, and what do you need to know about them?

It’s one thing to follow the political campaigns of two major mayoral campaigns and judge the opportunities and risks inherent in their platforms. But, Toronto’s mayor has just one vote on City Council. Without council support, his or her agenda may be impossible to implement.

Tracking what’s happening and who’s likely to win in each of the city’s wards – and assessing how they will likely vote on issues that affect your business – is a full-time job. Ballacainhas a team of people dedicated to this task.
