Labour's IOF proposal: nationalising 10% of everything

The UK Labour Party announced a proposal at its annual autumn conference that would require 10% of the shares in all companies with more than 250 employees to be owned by the employees. The dividends on those shares would then be shared between employees (but capped at £500 per employee), and the balance paid to the Government.

Dan Neidle and Phillip Souta discuss the practical implications for investors and businesses and what this might mean for shareholders.
