Greybrook’s Perspectives & Insights Event

May 25, 2023

On May 25th, Greybrook hosted our Perspectives and Insights event at the Four Seasons Hotel in Toronto.

We had the pleasure of welcoming over 120 investors and guests to the event, which provided us with a great opportunity to meet with our investors in person and share with them our perspectives on the economic outlook for Canada and the U.S., the housing market in Ontario, and some insights into what we are experiencing in the dynamic residential development industry in Southern Ontario.

We had a very engaged audience with many questions on inflation, monetary policy, and the implications of the current affordability challenges on the housing market, which sparked thoughtful discussion during the networking portion of the evening. For those who did not have an opportunity to attend the event, we have included a short recap of some of the key points Sasha Cucuz, CEO of Greybrook Securities Inc., shared.

Insights from the Event  

Inflation and the Bank of Canada’s monetary policy decisions have been top of mind and dominating the headlines for quite some time. Listen to Sasha recap his views on what the economic data is indicating and the disinflationary pressures that are likely to influence the Fed and the Bank of Canada’s future actions.

One of the interesting points covered in the presentation was an insight from CIBC’s economic research that compared the policy effectiveness of the rapid and significant rate increases of the late 1980’s/90’s with the current rapid rate escalations. Listen to Sasha’s recap on why the significant increase in the nominal rate of that 80’s/90’s is not necessarily an indication of the extent of the policy decisions the Bank of Canada will make in the current tightening cycle.

The housing market in Ontario is starting to show signs of a return with benchmark pricing in Ontario and Toronto showing an upward trend in April. That said, there continues to be low inventory and with the backdrop of the record breaking population growth and steady increase in annual population growth to Canada, the lack of supply has led to the current housing crisis. Listen to Sasha’s recap on the housing market in Ontario.When it comes to our investments, one of our investors asked what Greybrook is doing to protect their investments. Given the challenges people are having qualifying for higherrate mortgages and overall affordability challenges that are being experienced across the board. Listen to Sasha’s recap on this question.

We look forward to hosting our next Perspectives & Insights event to hear from our investors and share with them updates and insights. Contact your Investment Representative to learn more about upcoming events.
