As a former institutional investor who advises myriad pre-IPO and small-cap companies, Adam sees an increasingly poignant disconnect in the capital markets that is hurting shareholders.
On one side there are shareholder activists, Warren Buffet and Jamie Dimon, and entities like BlackRock and CalPERS that manage trillions of dollars. These people and entities are laser focused on boardrooms of private and public companies.
On the other side are pre-IPO and small-cap officers and directors who are understandably busy battling a never-ending array of existential risks, and often lack the time and resources to focus on governance efficacy.
Are there things that time and resource constrained pre-IPO and small-cap companies can do to benefit from the perspectives of activists, large-cap icons, and leading asset managers?
The answer is yes, yes, and yes.
“Ultimately, those who manage trillions of dollars and run America’s largest companies know one thing to be resolutely true: better governed companies make more money.” - Adam J. Epstein
