Private Equity Fundamentals

Private equity refers to company ownership by a specialized investment firm. Typically, a private equity firm will establish a fund and use it to buy multiple businesses, with the goal of selling each one within a few years at a profit.

Private equity firms will often target an underperforming business and, after purchasing the company, use their management expertise to improve profitability.
