Private Equity

Private Equity is a form of business in which the company’s entire equity base is owned by one or a small group of individual investors. Under the private equity model, the company does not issue shares onto the stock market, and hence is not usually required to release public financial statements or comply with other securities regulations. Private equity firms are generally considered to be more ruthlessly focused on generating shorter-term cash profits from their
operations than joint stock companies.
