Private Equity Exit Options

Private Equity Exit Options

In order to have a sustainable business, a fund manager needs to periodically raise a new fund; and in order to do this he needs successful exits. Gavin describes the four exit options and the benefits of each.
Overview

Having an exit as a required component of investment strategy, is one characteristic of private equity investment which makes it unique as an asset class.
