Understanding the private equity phenomenon

Jenkinson, Tim (2009) Understanding the private equity phenomenon. In: CFA Institute Conference Proceedings Quarterly, 26 (1), pp. 77-83.


Private equity’s high degree of leverage in the boom years leading up to the recent bust is a dominant factor in that market’s current precarious state. Valuations have fallen precipitously and are likely to fall farther, with some firms going into default. But many firms will prove robust, and those firms with cash available should be able to find excellent bargains in 2009 and 2010.
