Private Equity

In finance, private equity is an asset class 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 investor 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.
