Dominique Senequier Tells Economist ‘Private Equity Should Be More Generous’

In this article from the Economist, Dominique Senequier, head of Axa Private Equity talks about the need for the industry to include all of a companies’ employees in the share of capital gained when a firm exits. Rather controversially, she’s gone as far as to suggest an amendment to France’s labour code to oblige private-equity firms to distribute 5% of the capital gains from firms they sell among all the employees.  It’s been rightly pointed out though that this could create all sorts of legal problems with LPs. Makes for a good, quick read.
