Private Equity Masterclass

Overview of Private Equity Market and Fund Analysis

Course Introduction

Private equity is an investment activity in which dedicated funds acquire controlling interests in mature businesses with the objective of improving those businesses and selling them after five years post investment. The private equity buyout industry globally has over €3.5 trillion ($3.8tn) of assets under management and considers a mature asset class with a well-defined role as a financing tool for developed businesses. The industry merits special consideration not only because of its scale but also because of the unique characteristics of the market compared to other sources of equity financing.

Private Equity is becoming an increasingly important alternative to public capital markets and merits investigation based on its increasing size and importance as a source of equity capital for mature businesses. Private equity is of interest also as it is moving in the opposite direction to public capital markets.
