Investing money in capital markets involves risk and could result in losing money.  Past performance is no guarantee of future results. Future results are likely to be different from past performance. All equity portfolios involve risk and may lose money. One should research any investment and make sure it is suitable with your objectives, risk tolerance, risk profile, liquidity considerations, tax situation, and anything else pertinent to your financial situation. Also, attaining or holding the CFA credential in no way suggests performance will be superior than a market index or market return.

What is the difference between private equity and venture capital?
94% of people found this answer helpful

You are asking a distinct question which is quite interesting.  Private equity involves a private equity fund taking control of a company, usually using a high percentage of debt (70-100%) in the purchase price combined with 20% equity.  They change the management of the company, incentivze the new management with a piece of the ownership, and have them completely change the way the business operates, with the goal to make it more efficient, more profitable, and grow the business.  By doing so, in 5-10 years at the end of the fund, they will sell the company for a higher price, or take it public at a greater multiple than the price they paid.  So typically, private equity buys into large existing businesses with operations which have been established over a number of years.  Venture capital is typically a situation where a fund will invest capital in an early stage technology company, sometimes it will be nearly at the start of a company (called round a), and in other cases it will be later as the technology company has been building a business.  The venture capital company will get board representation and try to help grow the company into a much larger enterprise in 5 years, think going from 1 million or 5 million in revenue to 50-500 million in revenue.  Venture capital firms are trying to get an exit where they make 5-100 times their money in the 5-10 year lifetime of their fund.  Usually, on ten investments, they want one of the ten to make 10-100 times their money and that pays for the other 9 investments where they don't.  Another difference between private equity and venture capital is the amount of money invested in each specific company.  In some cases, private equity can pay hundreds of millions or even billions.  Venture capital, especially early stage, will invest 500K up to maybe 10 million, so the degree of capital used is far different.  I hope this helps answer your question.
