Pre distribution or Redistribution?


Importantly, the Predistribution Initiative is not a call for a redistribution of wealth - nor an argument against it.  

Rather, it recognizes that there are currently inefficiencies in labor and capital markets and that investors are uniquely positioned to more fairly compensate people on the basis of the value they actually create, from the portfolio company worker, to middle management, to senior management, to the professionals working for the fund manager, to the asset owner.  The initiative seeks to develop empirical and transparent methodologies to inform this approach, while not ignoring exogenous factors such as market rates for labor, localized cost of living for various stakeholders, etc.
