Private Equity Investors
Private equity makes long-term investments into companies in search for growth. Expert investment managers with extensive knowledge of running companies help to build better businesses by strengthening management, operations and/or expanding into new markets. The profits of the improvement are shared among the underlying investors and the specialists whose skills contributed to the company’s success.
What is Private Equity?
Private equity (PE) typically refers to investment funds, generally organized as limited partnerships, that buy and restructure companies. More formally, private equity is a type of equity and one of the asset classes consisting of equity securities and debt in operating companies that are not publicly traded on a stock exchange.
A private-equity investment will generally be made by a private-equity firm, a venture capital firm or an angel investor. Each of these categories of investors has its own set of goals, preferences and investment strategies; however, all provide working capital to a target company to nurture expansion, new-product development, or restructuring of the company’s operations, management, or ownership.
Private equity is also often grouped into a broader category called “private capital”, generally used to describe capital supporting any long-term, illiquid investment strategy.
