Political Equity

Political Equity

The influence that a company derives from its donations to political candidates. If a company makes large donations to a party or candidate, it is more likely to have a voice when ideas are discussed and to have politicians listen when it lobbies for its favored regulatory or other issues. Building political equity is a primary reason companies in the United States sometimes donate to both political parties.
