Overview

"While the landscape for private equity is being redrawn, an original roadmap is offered in this new book by Cyril Demaria. Combining academic grounding with practitioner relevance, it comprehensively reviews the asset class as a shifting ecosystem. An original review of an ever-original industry about to reinvent itself."
Dr Benoit Leleux, Stephan Schmidheiny Professor of Entrepreneurship & Finance, IMD, Switzerland

"Private equity is an important investment category for long-term investors. As such, all efforts to clarify the concepts, techniques and issues associated with these investments should be saluted. Cyril Demaria’s publication is particularly welcome from that point of view. The quality of the thinking and the clarity of expression make it a work of reference on the subject."
Professor Noël Amenc, Director of the EDHEC-Risk Institute

"As an investor and practitioner of the private equity asset class the first thing one realizes is that this book is clearly written by a practitioner who knows the industry inside-out. It is well structured and addresses a number of misconceptions afflicting the private equity industry. It offers very valuable insights to both novices and intermediate-level industry participants. One of the best books I have read on the subject."
Markus Benzler, Director, UBS Global Asset Management

"The author provides a thoroughly researched introduction to the different aspects and key dimensions of the private equity industry. The historical perspective adds a refreshing element of life in the matter. The volume keeps abreast of recent developments and offers a realistic assessment of the current trends affecting the industry. It should find its place on the bookshelf of practitioners and academics as a valuable reference work."
Cédric Spahr, Head of Alternative Investment Research, Credit Suisse AG
