Many are looking to improve the way they invest their money in order to get greater returns, and one way to do so that people may not think about, is to invest in companies where the founders still control a large portion of the stock options the company has. WTIM Investment Professional Steve Henry says these kinds of companies have a greater incentive to perform well over the long term.
Several studies have been conducted on these types of companies, which show that they often provide greater returns than companies where the founders are no longer involved.
Often when a founder is still involved with a company, there is a more invested interest in the long term growth of the company, where with other companies, the focus is more on the short term.
Henry appeared as a guest on the Newstalk WTIM Morning Show.
