Private Equity Fund

A private equity fund is a non-public stock fund managed by a SEC-registered investment adviser for the purpose of pursuing a variety of investment strategies such as:

  • Buyout
  • Growth equity
  • Venture capital

One typical strategy undertaken by a private equity firm is to take a controlling interest in a portfolio company and actively engage in the management and direction of the business to help increase its value.

Additionally, some private equity funds specialize in making minority investments in businesses with promising growth prospects, aiming to support their expansion and development.
