The simplest definition of private equity is that it is: equity – that is, shares representing ownership of or an interest in an entity – that is not publicly listed or traded. A source of investment capital, private equity actually derives from high net worth individuals and firms that purchase shares of private companies or acquire control of public companies with plans to take them private, eventually become delisted them from public stock exchanges. Most of the private equity industry is made up of large institutional investors, such as pension funds, and large private equity firms funded by a group of accredited investors.
Since the basis of private equity investment is direct investment into a firm, often to gain a significant level of influence over the firm’s operations, quite a large capital outlay is required, which is why larger funds with deep pockets dominate the industry. The minimum amount of capital required for investors can vary depending on the firm and fund.
