Private equity firms manage investments in private companies. They may raise funds from external investors and invest on their behalf, invest the firms’ own funds or do a combination of the two. Investments can include venture and growth capital for emerging companies, and buyouts, which include purchases of publicly traded companies to take them private. Firms earn revenue from management fees paid by outside investors, and from gains made on investing their own funds.
