Greetings From Guy

Guy PfeffermannIts a war for talent in the emerging markets right now.

Private equity (PE) is a major source of investment in emerging markets.  PE refers to an asset class in which investors purchase the illiquid equity or equity-like securities of operating companies. This equity is not publicly traded but instead held in private hands. In exchange for their capital, PE firms take concentrated minority or majority ownership in a company. PE investors typically hold these securities for three to seven years, with the expectation of generating attractive risk-adjusted financial returns when exiting.

According to the Executive Vice President of the International Finance Corporation – an arm of the World Bank Group – it stands at about $320 billion.  As we know, most jobs in the developing world are generated by the private sector, and PE is an effective tool in building the companies that drive economic growth in every industry – manufacturing, services, technology and others. Local entrepreneurs are opening their shareholding structure to outside investors, which then play a role in strengthening these firms.
