The growing tide of support behind the legalization of cannabis – whether for medical or recreational use – is already transforming the face of the capital markets in North America. Where the drug was once bought and sold on street corners, lawmakers are now waking up to the potential benefits of marijuana – and the lucrative market the plant is steadily creating. 
Once the preserve of small ‘mom-and-pop’ operations, cannabis is rapidly becoming a multi-billion dollar industry, with both its own players – the likes of Canopy Growth Corp, Tilray and Aurora Cannabis – and a growing trend of large consolidating brands moving into the space. In fact, the industry could be worth $100 bn within 10 years, according to recent estimations.
In this IR Magazine Webinar, held in association with Bloomberg, expert panelists will dive into the trends that define the cannabis industry, the wave of state approvals that could lead the way to federal legalization, and the implications the blooming industry has for the future role of IR.
Sign up to this webinar to find out more about:

  • The trends and characteristics that make the cannabis industry unique from an IR perspective, and why investors and analysts still require explanation
  • Why specialist funds and exchange-traded funds are sprouting up to take advantage of the rapid growth opportunities these once-small firms offer
  • How the world’s largest consolidating companies are turning their eye to marijuana-related M&A opportunities
  • The best ways to stay ahead of all these trends and observe which cannabis stocks investors are backing.
