What is Private Equity?

Before jumping into the private equity analyst role segment, it’s paramount that we understand the concept of private equity on a more grass-root level. Private equity, the name is very suggestive that this has got to do more with the private companies that are not listed on public domains.

In simpler terms, private equity represents stakes or interest in the companies that are yet to be publicly listed, most likely companies that are still in the nascent stage of business which require more of private funding given the stage of its development.

Private equity provides new and emerging businesses with a source of capital, generally, private equity stakes in a company are held by high net worth individuals who have an interest in having some control over the operations and functioning of the enterprise by investing the capital required.

The motivation for investors to invest such a huge chunk of money is more than just gaining a substantial interest to have control over the business, it is more about gaining multiple fold returns on the investment. This kind of exponential returns is only present in private equity or some other alternative investments.
