International Investments in Private Equity book cover

International Investments in Private Equity

Asset Allocation, Markets, and Industry Structure

How can private equity investors exploit investment opportunities in foreign markets?  Peter Cornelius uses a proprietary database to investigate and describe private equity markets worldwide, revealing their levels of integration, their risks, and the ways that investors can mitigate those risks.  In three major sections that concentrate on the risk and return profile of private equity, the growth dynamics of discrete markets and geographies, and opportunities for private equity investments, he offers hard-to-find analyses that fill knowledge gaps about foreign markets.  Observing that despite the progressive dismantling of barriers investors are still home-biased, he demonstrates that a methodical approach to understanding foreign private equity markets can take advantage of the macroeconomic and structural factors that drive supply and demand dynamics in individual markets.

Audience
Investment professionals as well as upper-division undergraduates and graduate students worldwide studying investments and financial markets
