Private Equity (Part I)

Private equity is a specialized form of investing in companies whose shares are (generally) not traded on public markets. It represents a different way of ‘owning’ companies compared with the more familiar stock market investment. Funds provided by private equity firms now complement the provision of ongoing lending to firms by commercial banks and finance houses, and of longer-term financing in the form of debt securities and equity (in addition to some forms of direct lending) by the investment banking community.

 

This course – the first of two – looks at the fundamentals of the private equity industry. It covers topics such as the growth and importance of private equity as an asset class and the different types of private equity available (venture capital and buyouts).
