Private equity generally works the same way throughout Wall Street, whether we’re talking about an independent private equity firm, a public firm like The Carlyle Group, or a fund that’s part of a major hedge fund or investment bank (although the Volcker Rule now requires investment banks to have no more than 3 percent of their capital invested in private equity, hedge funds, and other investment funds). Private equity companies, or divisions, have to create a fund and finance it, find potential investments, line up additional financing, make the deal, fix up the company and determine the exit strategy. Here’s a look at how it works.
