Wilfred Brown, chairman of a large industry in Britain, who has written quite extensively on management and organization from the point of view of a practicing manager, has said:
These forces, although quite different from one another, have an equality of status within an organization. All three are investors.
A shareholder invests money because he has money to invest, and seeks for the highest return with the lowest risk possible. The shareholder also wishes to see his investment grown over the years and will sometimes be prepared to receive a relatively low immediate return from the investment in the form of dividends, if he feels confident that it will be balanced by a fairly high growth. It may be true that a shareholder is able to remove his investment at will at will, but when this investment represents very large sums of money, it can often mean movement at a loss, and it is movement that would require a considerable amount of study and application.
