The Economic and Social Impact of Private Equity in Europe: Summary of Research Findings

Per Strömberg

Swedish House of Finance

September 2009

The private equity industry has found itself caught up in the prevailing political debate concerning the need for reform of financial services regulation. However, much of the debate about private equity tends to be based on hearsay or, at best, isolated examples, with little reference to the real impact of the industry on the European economic model. The purpose of this short research summary is to bring some clarity to the areas of the private equity model that have been most debated. The report presents the main features of the private equity model and summarises the empirical evidence relating to a number of economic and social impact questions.
