Private Equity Fund

A private equity fund is an investment fund which invests in private equity rather than in stocks or other securities.

Private equity funds are made up of shares which can be purchased by investors. Investors earn dividends on fund profits in relation to the number of shares they hold.

This sets private equity funds apart from private equity firms – asset management service providers which invest in private equity on behalf of their clients.
