Publicly Traded Private Equity

Publicly traded private equity (also referred to as publicly quoted private equity or publicly listed private equity) refers to an investment firm or investment vehicle, which makes investments conforming to one of the various private equity strategies, and is listed on a public stock exchange.

There are fundamentally two separate opportunities that private equity firms pursued in the public markets. These options involved a public listing of either:

  • A private equity firm (the management company), which provides shareholders an opportunity to gain exposure to the management fees and carried interest earned by the investment professionals and managers of the private equity firm. The most notable example of this public listing was completed by The Blackstone Group in 2007
  • A private equity fund or similar investment vehicle, which allows investors that would otherwise be unable to invest in a traditional private equity limited partnership to gain exposure to a portfolio of private equity investments.

Famous quotes containing the words equity, private, publicly and/or traded:

    If equity and human natural reason were allowed there would be no law, there would be no lawyers.
    Christina Stead (1902–1983)

    It was evident that, both on account of the feudal system and the aristocratic government, a private man was not worth so much in Canada as in the United States; and, if your wealth in any measure consists in manliness, in originality and independence, you had better stay here. How could a peaceable, freethinking man live neighbor to the Forty-ninth Regiment? A New-Englander would naturally be a bad citizen, probably a rebel, there,—certainly if he were already a rebel at home.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    One should not publicly display the ugliness of one’s family.
    Chinese proverb.

    When we traded the buffalo for a mare,
    we had no milk to drink,
    and we still had droppings to clean up.
    Punjabi proverb, trans. by Gurinder Singh Mann.
