Private Equity: Opportunities and Risks


Add your own review!

Overview

During the past few decades, private equity (PE) has attracted considerable attention from investors, practitioners, and academicians. In fact, a substantial literature on PE has emerged. PE offers benefits for institutional and private wealth management clients including diversification and enhancement of risk-adjusted returns. However, several factors such as liquidity concerns, regulatory restrictions, and the lack of transparency limit the attractiveness of some PE options to investors. The latest volume in the Financial Markets and Investments Series, Private Equity: Opportunities and Risks offers a synthesis of the theoretical and empirical literature on PE in both emerging and developed markets. Editors H. Kent Baker, Greg Filbeck, Halil Kiymaz and their co-authors examine PE and provide important insights about topics such as major types of PE (venture capital, leveraged buyouts, mezzanine capital, and distressed debt investments), how PE works, performance and measurement, uses and structure, and trends in the market. Readers can gain an in-depth understanding about PE from academics and practitioners from around the world. Private Equity: Opportunities and Risks provides a fresh look at the intriguing yet complex subject of PE. A group of experts takes readers through the core topics and issues of PE, and also examines the latest trends and cutting-edge developments in the field. The coverage extends from discussing basic concepts and their application to increasingly complex and real-world situations. This new and intriguing examination of PE is essential reading for anyone hoping to gain a better understanding of PE, from seasoned professionals to those aspiring to enter the demanding world of finance.

Reviews

Private Equity has been the subject of a great deal of criticism and concern, especially in the wake of the financial crisis. Because it involves private ownership instead of public listing of securities, many of the industry's practices and features remain shrouded in mystery. This book provides a broad, yet thorough, synthesis of the key issues of concern to investors, policy makers and academics alike. The book is a great resource for anyone who wants to gain a broad understanding of the past, present and future of the industry. David T. Robinson, Professor of Finance and J. Rex Fuqua Distinguished Professor of International Management, Fuqua School of Business, Duke University
