Overview

Private equity is one of the most rapidly expanding and exciting areas of modern finance on both sides of the Atlantic. It is now responsible for a significant proportion of new flotations and for a high level of merger and acquisition activity. Yet the workings of the private equity industry are, by its very nature, opaque. Most private equity investment funds are not quoted companies and the complex concepts and structures used by the industry (and its jargon) often exclude the uninitiated. In Private Equity: Examining the New Conglomerates of European Business Peter Temple examines the current state of the private equity industry, its origins and the increasing ramifications it is assuming for society at large. He leads the reader through the jargon jungle of BIMBOs, BAMBIs, RAMBOs and COLOMBOs explaining in a clear and entertaining style the roles played by corporate managers, financiers, and investors in private equity, and its risks and potential rewards.
