Private Equity

Private equity is a security that is traded with a company that is not available to the general public. This means that it cannot be found on a typical stock exchange. Among the most common types of private equity are real estate, energy materials and infrastructure investments. Private equity is also an investment in a non-publicly traded company that is made by a private equity firm or venture capital firm.
