ANSWERS TO COMMON QUESTIONS ABOUT PRIVATE EQUITY FIRMS

Clearly, private equity dollars have a huge impact, driving tremendous growth for the U.S. economy – not to mention the valuable products and services these funded companies provide to entities of all types across the U.S. and beyond.

In this whitepaper, written by the Association for Public Growth, we set out to answer these questions and address some common misperceptions, as well as outline the benefits of private capital investment for not only private equity firms and their investors, but more importantly, portfolio companies and their customers.
