Causes and Consequences of the Decline of the Public Corporation

On behalf of the All Party Parliamentary Corporate Governance Group, the London Business School has carried out a piece of research analysing the data in public and private equity markets over the last 20 years, illustrating the declining trend of companies listing in the UK, as well as deriving qualitative research from interviews with academic experts, intermediaries and experienced business leaders in order to understand what is driving this trend. The aim of their research was to understand how these trends have influenced public corporations in the UK. The results were presented to members of the Group on 19th April 2016 in the House of Commons by LBS students Yannick Lakoue-Derrant and Margarita Economides. Further details can be found below.
