  • Global Tilt: Leading Your Business Through the Great Economic Power Shift

  • Global Tilt: Leading Your Business Through the Great Economic Power Shift
    The world's economic center of gravity has shifted. Permanently. Do you know what it now takes to succeed? The global tilt is nothing less than an irreversible shift of economic power-jobs, wealth, and market opportunities-from a small part of the world to its entirety. It is improving the lives of millions of people around the world, and while it is creating immense opportunities, it is disrupting the world as you know it with dizzying speed. If you're an American or European, any assumptions you may have about national and managerial superiority are obsolete. Businesses in China, Singapore, India, Brazil, Malaysia, and other countries on the move have ready access to the capital and expertise they need to grow. Their leaders have just as much knowledge, talent, and drive as you do. And they are unleashing their entrepreneurial verve to scale up fast and grab once-in-a-lifetime opportunities. These businesses will soon be competing with yours everywhere on the planet, even if you're not aware of them yet. Finding opportunities of your own requires you to consider vastly different perspectives and to see the new global landscape in its entirety and then change the content of your work to pursue them. In "Global Tilt," "New York Times" bestselling author Ram Charan gives business leaders the guidance they need to succeed in a tilted world, including: - Gaining an edge by cutting through the complexity of demographics, different forms of government, and even the global financia

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

  • 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.
