The impact of investment funds on restructuring practices and employment levels

PDF version Printer-friendly version
This report examines whether investment funds – in particular, private equity, hedge funds and sovereign wealth funds – help to revive underperforming companies and thereby contribute to employment growth or whether, on the contrary, they strive to maximise financial returns at the expense of labour. Overall, the report concludes that investment funds are neither wholly ‘bad’ nor wholly ‘good’ with regard to the impact on labour in their invested firms. An executive summary and company case studies are available - see Related content.
