Private equity funds are popular “alternative investments” and now fashionable that many large investors (high net worth families and institutional investors) seemed to be involved. Private equity funds to acquire looking for companies or businesses at a lower cost. They used to use a lot of deductible tax debt to their revenue, reduce costs to try to improve profitability in the short and long term, and to sell assets to take the capital.

Past large private equity funds are very good, more than market returns. According to Fortune magazine in the 10s to mid 2006 (probably the peak for PE) private equity returns average 11.4% versus 6.6% for the index SP500 stock market. In the longer term (20 years) results show that private equity investments returned a premium of 4% -5% in the equity markets. Of course, these higher yields are achieved with a significantly higher risk and an investment that will “lock” for many years.
