Private Equity

Reading Time: 1 minute

A financing source that is not noted on a public exchange. Private Equity is typically composed of funds and investors that invest directly in private companies or buyouts of public companies (resulting in the delisting of those public companies and returning them to private ownership). The term “Private Equity” may include Venture Capital (e.g. in Europe) or exclude Venture Capital, treating the two as separate types of investments (e.g. in the US).
