Introduction

Welcome to Credit Suisse Corporate Insights

Our clients frequently discuss the extensive challenges they face in today's market. Many of the old paradigms have shifted or disappeared altogether. Activism poses a looming and continuous challenge, making corporate governance even more complex. The economic backdrop in all regions keeps shifting and sustainable global growth continues to be elusive.

Against this backdrop, key strategic decisions to drive growth, to increase returns, or to gain a competitive edge are difficult and complex. Capital allocation, value creation, acquisition or disposal possibilities, and optimal balance sheet structures are frequent topics of discussions as our clients evaluate the range of opportunities available to them.

These new Credit Suisse Corporate Insights periodicals will give you our perspectives on evaluating the key and critical decision points many of you face. In this, our inaugural edition, we explore the topical issue of capital allocation, outlining a proprietary framework to evaluate different capital deployment alternatives.

Delivering world-class financial advice to our clients is of paramount importance to us, and I hope you find this series valuable.
