What is private equity/debt?
Investors may wish to provide capital to private businesses. The investor may become a company owner (equity investor) or a company creditor (debt investor), depending on how the agreement is structured. The funding provided may help start a new business, provide an existing firm with additional capital, finance the acquisition of a company, or something else entirely. In general, private equity/debt is less liquid than public equity/debt.
Investments are most often made by investing in a pooled investment vehicle that invests in private companies (Private Equity Funds) or through direct purchase of private company stock.
Investments are most often made indirectly by investing in a pooled investment vehicle (or fund) that invests in loans or other debt instruments, or directly by lending. Included in these types of investments are secured and unsecured Promissory Notes and Mortgage/Deeds of Trust.
