Private equity is ownership or interest in an entity that is not publicly listed or traded. A source of investment capital, private equity comes from high-net-worth individuals and firms that purchase stakes in private companies or acquire control of public companies with plans to take them private, eventually delisting them from stock exchanges. The private equity industry is comprised of institutional investors such as pension funds, and large private equity firms funded by accredited investors.
