San Diego, CA (PRWEB) February 13, 2013
Interest rates matter – a lot. Following a recent move by the Federal Reserve to keep rates low until the economy hits specific targets, InsideTheFirm.com has released a detailed analysis of how this policy could affect the financial industry, and in particular, private equity jobs.
The Fed recently adopted the “Evans Rule,” which will keep interest rates near zero until unemployment rates and/or inflation expectations improve significantly. In “Private Equity Employment and Interest Rates,” InsideTheFirm.com examines the correlation between this monetary policy and employment in private equity businesses, hedge funds, and investment banking firms.
The good news? According to David Kochanek, the site’s publisher, “In our insider report, the 2013 Private Equity Compensation Report, we discovered a strong positive trend in private equity hiring. This move by the Fed shouldn't slow new hires, and we continue to anticipate continued job growth in 2013.”
“Private Equity Employment and Interest Rates” uses regression models to determine the estimated effect of interest rate policy on employment in different sectors of the financial industry, along with associated estimations of confidence levels.
