Private equity and beyond
Volume II: Private Capital Investments
By all measures, the continuous growth and expansion of the private capital asset class has been steep. The industry has grown over 200 times in a quarter of a century and is estimated to triple further over the next ten years. Once regarded as a small blip at the margin of alternative investments, private equity has become an asset class of its own and moved to the centre stage of capital markets. With its long-term record of successful performance, the private equity investment model has benefited from an unprecedented increase in the capital allocation by pension, endowments, and sovereign wealth funds around the world.

Acclaims from the founders and captains of the private equity industry
Professors Talmor and Vasvari's first book quickly became a standard reference work on our industry. Their new book expands the breadth of this coverage, reflecting the rapid evolution of the alternative assets sector. By offering cutting-edge perspectives on emerging best practices, it makes itself an indispensable guide to the future of private markets.
Founder and Executive Chairman of Coller Capital
If I were to encapsulate in a single place all that I have learned in more than thirty years of international private equity investing, I could not have come close to doing as good a job as Professors Eli Talmor and Florin Vasari have done in their new two-volume book on this subject. For anyone interested in learning about the complications, as well as the potential rewards involved in this type of investing, I highly recommend Private Capital.
