Product description

From the Inside Flap

THE DEFINITIVE GUIDE TO PRIVATE EQUITY

Mastering Private Equity was written with a professional audience in mind and provides a valuable and unique reference for investors, finance professionals, students and business owners looking to engage with private equity firms or invest in private equity funds. From deal sourcing to exit, LBOs to responsible investing, operational value creation to risk management, the book systematically distills the essence of private equity into core concepts throughout the private equity life cycle.

This book combines insights from leading academics and practitioners and was carefully structured to offer:

  • A clear and concise reference for the industry expert
  • A step-by-step guide for students and casual observers of the industry
  • A theoretical companion to the INSEAD case book Private Equity in Action: Case Studies from Developed and Emerging Markets

Dean of INSEAD

"This is a powerful book, clear on the fundamentals and rich on insight. It accurately describes how private equity works—it also provides nuance on how private equity really works."

Just moved to this sector and needed to upskill quickly. This book was recommended for me as a good starting point, and I have read many books on PA after and... go back only to this one. It is well written with good examples so even if you are no PE expert you can follow. I like it!
