4 Private Equity - Overview Private equity is an asset class for investing in public and non-public companies or physical assets, such as real estate.PE firms seek to invest directly in private companies or acquire private/public companies and capitalize on the investments by selling the company laterInvestments are less liquid and seek exit after 3-5 years.Fee structures typically consist of a yearly 2% management fee and 20% of gross profits upon sale of the company (2 and 20 structure).
5 Current StatePrivate Equity fundamentals have been steadily strengthening since the global financial crisis.High asset prices and stiff competition from a new breed of investors, including sovereign wealth funds, state-owned enterprises, pension plans, specialist funds and large family offices pose obstacles to new deals.Such investors are now managing their own investment portfolios and buying companies directly to avoid private equity fees.

13 Investment BankingBulge Bracket – The world's largest and most profitable investment banks. Their clients tend to be large corporations and institutions, and governments.Most Bulge Bracket Firms are not solely devoted to investment banking operationsE.G. Bank of America, Barclays, J.P. Morgan, UBS, Credit Suisse, Morgan Stanley, Citigroup, Goldman Sachs, and Deutsche BankBoutique Investment Banks - A boutique investment bank is an entity that specializes in some subset of investment banking. Boutique banks generally work on smaller deals involving middle-market companies, typically less than a billion dollars in revenues, and usually assist on the sell-side in mergers and acquisitions transactions.E. G. Lazard, Blackstone, Jefferies &Co, and Morgan Keegan & Co.
14 Investment Banking Operations Corporate FinanceIBs will help companies raise funds by evaluating the firm's financial needs and raising the appropriate type of capital that best fits the needs of the company.Initial Public Offerings (IPOs)IBs help companies raise cash for future operations and/or expansion through the sale of stocks or bonds or underwriting.Mergers and Acquisitions (M&A)IBs will be retained by both buy side and sell side parties in order to structure a merger or a combination of two companies seeking to form a new company or an acquisition or the purchase of one company by another in which no new company is formed. When facilitating M&As, bankers help finalize the purchase price, structure the deal, and ensure a smooth transaction.Sales and Trading (S&T)IBs will often make a market in certain securities and execute sales for wealthy and institutional investors such as central banks, pension funds, mutual funds, and large corporations by communicating orders to the appropriate trading desk. Sale side traders make money through commissions on trades made through their firms or, increasingly, as a percentage of their clients’ assets with the firm. IBs will also engage in proprietary trading with their own funds in order to leverage and manage risk. (although the Dodd-Frank Bill has added more regulation to this venture). Traders make only off of a spread.
