Private Equity: Opportunities and Risks
Private equity offers benefits for institutional and private wealth management clients including diversification and enhancements of risk-adjusted returns. However, the lack of transparency, regulatory restrictions, and liquidity concerns that exist for some private equity options limit their attractiveness for some investors.
"Private equity: Opportunities and Risks" offers a synthesis of the theoretical and empirical literature on private equity in both emerging and developed markets. The book examines private equity and provides important insights about topics such as its major types - venture capital, leveraged buyouts, mezzanine capital, and distressed debt investments - how the asset class works, performance and measurement, uses and structure, and trends. Thomas contributed the chapter "Private equity portfolio management - Challenges, approaches, and implementation".
