Private Equity Administration

Course Summary

Private equity investment typically provides working capital to a target company to nurture expansion, new product development or restructuring of the company’s operations, management or ownership. Investors and funds make investments directly into private companies or conduct buyouts of public companies that result in a delisting of public equity. The majority of private equity consists of intuitional investors who can commit large sums of money for long periods of time.
