Matrix Global Advisor CEO Alex Brill Finds S ESOPs Create Jobs Faster Than Private Sector As A Whole, But Represent Only A Small Fraction Of Business Exits

Home Reports Matrix Global Advisor CEO Alex Brill Finds S ESOPs Create Jobs Faster Than Private Sector As A Whole, But Represent Only A Small Fraction Of Business Exits

In March 2017, research by Matrix Global Advisors CEO Alex Brill found that S ESOP job growth exceeded that of the private sector as a whole since 2002. Yet, the study also finds that S ESOPs make up only a fraction of current U.S. business transitions, despite offering unique benefits including greater firm longevity, higher wages for workers, and better job security. Brill concludes that “it would be a positive development if more private business owners choose this exit strategy when it is a viable one for them and their company and if policies to promote wider adoption of S ESOPs were pursued.”
