The private equity and venture capital section of eFinancialCareers includes job vacancies at a range of levels including analysts, associates and directors.
Private equity generally refers to funds that own a substantial stake in a private company, a company that has not been made available for public ownership through a stock issue.
There are two main types of fund within the private equity sector: buyout funds, and venture capital funds.
Venture capital funds typically focus on providing investment for start up companies, often in industries like technology, life sciences and telecommunications.
Buyout funds gather the capital needed to make a one off investment into an established business, generally in exchange for a controlling share. Three of the most common types of buyout are: - Management buyouts (MBOs): A team of managers from within the company make a move to buy that company from its current owners. - Management buy ins (MBIs): A team of executives makes a move to buy a rival company in the same sector. - Leveraged buyouts (LBOs): Although all buyouts will involve a certain degree of debt (leverage), in this type of buyout the target enterprise’s future cash flow is used to service and eventually repay the money borrowed to fund the purchase.
