Private Equity

Private Equity (PE) is the provision of long-term equity capital by investors to companies that are not publicly traded on a stock exchange. Private Equity can be used to develop new products and technologies, to expand working capital, to make acquisitions, or to strengthen a company’s balance sheet. It can also resolve ownership and management issues, such as succession in family-owned companies, or the buy-out/buy-in of a business by experienced managers.

Venture Capital

Venture Capital (VC) is a subset of Private Equity that targets start-up and recently formed companies in need of capital to expand their business, referring to equity investments made for the launch, early development, or expansion of a business.
