Mastering Private Equity: Transformation via Venture Capital, Minority Investments & Buyouts is the definitive guide to private equity, providing a valuable and unique reference for investors, finance professionals, students and business owners looking to engage with private equity firms or invest in private equity funds.

From deal sourcing to exit, leveraged buyouts to responsible investing, operational value creation to risk management, the book systematically distils the essence of private equity into core concepts and explains in detail the dynamics of venture capital, growth equity and buyout transactions.

Containing a foreword by Henry Kravis, Co-Chairman and Co-CEO of KKR, special guest comments by senior PE professionals from a wide range of firms and insights from leading academics, Mastering Private Equity offers a clear and concise reference for the industry expert and a step-by-step guide for students and casual observers of the industry.

It also provides a theoretical companion to Private Equity in Action: Case Studies from Developed and Emerging Markets which takes readers on a tour of the private equity investment world through a series of case studies written by INSEAD faculty, and taught at the world’s leading business schools.

Allowing readers to apply core concepts in real-life settings, Private Equity in Action contains 19 cases which illustrate the managerial challenges and risk-reward dynamics common to private equity investment. It covers the full spectrum of private equity strategies, including:

  • Carve-outs in the US semiconductor industry (LBO)
  • Venture investing in the Indian wine industry (VC)
  • Investing in SMEs in the Middle East
  • Turnaround situations in both emerging and developed markets

Private Equity in Action is a reference for students, investors, finance professionals and business owners looking to engage with private equity firms and the cases in this volume leverage INSEAD’s international reach, network and connections, particularly in emerging markets.
Mastering Private Equity and Private Equity in Action are available as individual titles or can be bought together as a set wherever books and ebooks are sold.
