Inside Private Equity focuses on the ownership of private assets by institutional investors such as foundations and endowments and major pension plans, an alternative investment space know simply as private equity. This once sleepy backwater of investing is now a raging river of investment activity among institutional investors seeking to diversify their portfolios and achieve above-market returns in an alternative asset class. This book comprehensively explores the topic and gives investors a detailed overview of this asset class, and how to invest successfully within it.
