Unlocking value in a growing opportunity set

As the opportunity set in private equity has grown and access has been democratized, investors can seek out a wider range of strategies and access points.

Private equity firms generally seek to unlock value in their companies. Driving factors for determining the value of a private equity investment can include the price paid for a company (paying a price below market comparable is sometimes known as “creating value on the buy”), making operational improvements (can include increasing revenue or improving margins), and the exit value.

Multiple ways to unlock value and a focus on multi-year strategic planning versus quarterly earnings reports are some of the potential advantages of private equity for investors without a high need for liquidity.2
