In “Plunder: Private Equity’s Plan to Pillage America”, written by award winning author, Mr. Brendan Ballou, it uncovers the inner workings of private equity firms, their influence on American businesses, jobs, and communities. 

The CFA Society of Hong Kong is proud to present Mr. Ballou, for a captivating webinar where Mr. Ballou will be presenting the highlights of his book, revealing the detrimental effects of private equity on businesses, workers, and communities. As these firms take control, prices rise, quality diminishes, jobs are cut, and resources are diverted away from productive sectors of the economy. Companies saddled with massive debts and extractive fees often face bankruptcy or become mere shadows of their former selves, impacting the communities they once served.  Gain insight into the complicity of various government entities in enabling and supporting the activities of private equity. This interdependent relationship raises questions about the role of regulation and accountability in the face of such widespread influence.

Join us for this insightful webinar which includes a fireside chat with Dr. Alvin Ho, CFA, President of CFA Society Hong Kong, followed by a Q&A session. 

We hope this webinar provides a platform for critical discussion surrounding the issues raised in “Plunder,” and discover the vision for reining in the private equity industry.  Don’t miss the opportunity to participate in this enlightening and thought-provoking session with Brendan and Alvin.
