9780198723943: Institutional Investor Activism: Hedge Funds and Private Equity, Economics and Regulation

The past two decades has witnessed unprecedented changes in the corporate governance landscape in Europe, the US and Asia. Across many countries, activist investors have pursued engagements with management of target companies.

More recently, the role of the hostile activist shareholder has been taken up by a set of hedge funds. Hedge fund activism is characterized by mergers and corporate restructuring, replacement of management and board members, proxy voting, and lobbying of management. These investors target and research companies, take large positions in `their stock, criticize their business plans and governance practices, and confront their managers, demanding action enhancing shareholder value.

This book analyses the impact of activists on the companies that they invest, the effects on shareholders and on activists funds themselves. Chapters examine such topic as investors' strategic approaches, the financial returns they produce, and the regulatory frameworks within which they operate. The chapters also provide historical context, both of activist investment and institutional shareholder passivity. The volume facilitates a comparison between the US and the EU, juxtaposing not only regulatory patterns but investment styles.

Review:


"This book suits many audiences. It is an excellent resource for financial and governance researchers who are interested in understanding the recent developments in the activism model adopted by hedge fund and private equity firms, as well as empirical challenges to studying the effects from activists' interventions on corporate governance and performance outcomes. Overall, I strongly recommend this book to anyone who is interested in developing an understanding of the advent and inner workings of hedge fund activism, a new reality in corporate governance."

-- The Accounting Review


"Bratton and McCaherys edited volume addresses todays most fundamental question regarding the governance of dispersed-ownership corporations: have private equity and activist hedge funds solved the problem of the separation of ownership from control? This remarkable collection of essays by the worlds leading corporate governance scholars will play a critical role in shaping the discussion in both academic and policy circles for many years to come."

-- Merritt B. Fox, Michael E. Patterson Professor of Law, NASDAQ Professor for Law and Economics of Capital Markets, Columbia University Law School


"Hedge funds and private equity funds are the active governance agents of late. Bratton and McCahery have put together a collection of highly informative essays examining many aspects of the governance model adopted by these institutional investors: tactics, performance, economic consequences, as well as the regulatory framework in which they operate. The volume must be recommended to anyone interested in corporate governance."
-- Mike Burkart, Gösta Olson Professor of Finance, Stockholm School of Economics


"Hedge fund activism and private equity have become central for corporate governance in recent years. This books collects impressive papers from some of the most prominent academics in the field, which is now richer for the editors and authors efforts."

-- Mark J. Roe, David Berg Professor of Law, Harvard Law School
