The leadership premium - How companies win the confidence of investors

More than 50 percent of stock market analysts routinely factor leadership into their valuations—and 80 percent award a premium for particularly effective senior teams, according to a new Deloitte research paper.

Based on a global study of investment bankers, private equity companies, and financial analysts, the paper, The Leadership Premium: How companies win the confidence of investors, puts a hard metric on the “intangible asset” of leadership, revealing that, in some sectors, good leaders can account for more than one-fifth of equity value.

In interview after interview, analysts told Deloitte that the quality of senior leadership helped decide the long-term potential of a stock. The gap between the value of an effectively-led and ineffectively-led company could, says the paper, be as much as 35.5 percent.

So how do analysts judge leaders—and how can companies bridge that gap?
