How companies are using an asset-light strategy to gain a competitive advantage

In this webcast, leaders will discuss how asset-light strategies are helping companies improve their cost structure, enhance agility and grow their business in a post-pandemic world.

As companies enter the recovery stage from COVID-19, many are re-evaluating ownership of non-core assets and operations, and potentially migrating to an ecosystem of strategic partners. These partners, typically “better owners or managers” of such assets, can help transition fixed costs to a variable cost structure, enhance company agility, shift resources to focus on core or critical capabilities and enhance valuation.

During this webcast, industry and EY leaders will discuss:

  • What factors are driving the trend toward asset-light strategies
  • The latest data on how asset-light approaches may enable higher returns and may help to accelerate COVID-19 recovery
  • Where to begin when re-evaluating ownership of non-core assets and operations
  • Implications for tax and accounting, deal structure and governance
