The private equity market involves professionally managed equity investments in unregistered securities of private and public companies.
Professional management is provided by specialized intermediaries know as General Partners. These intermediaries typically acquire large ownership stakes in the companies they invest in and take an active role in monitoring and advising them.
This course explores the private equity and venture capital (PE/VC) industries, focusing on the whole lifecycle of an investment firm, from the creation of a General Partnership (GP), to fundraising, the creation of funds, portfolio management, performance reporting and the definition of the exit strategies.
The course is planned for professionals with a basic understanding of the private equity industry. Our approach serves anyone in the buy or sell side, whether representing a general partner, a fund manager, a family office running an active investment program, or an entrepreneur looking for options for new ventures. The program is designed to enhance the investment expertise and improve the student’s effectiveness at every stage of the fundraising, deal analysis and structuring, deal execution and exit processes.Course Outline
