Description:
Many people are familiar with the terms private equity , venture capital and hedge fund , but few can actually define how each investment vehicle operates or makes money. Thanks to their seemingly complicated nature and lucrative reputations, the PE, VC and hedge fund industries occupy an almost mythic (and sometimes infamous) status for Americans. The combination of mystery and wealth creates a vacuum for misinformation and mistrust. This webinar series de-mystifies these private funds, explaining their similarities and differences from other investment vehicles and from each other- from the legal, financial, and investment mandate perspectives. Each episode is delivered in
Plain English understandable to business owners and executives without much background in these areas. Yet, each episode is proven to be valuable to seasoned professionals. As with all Financial Poise Webinars, each episode in the series brings you into engaging, sometimes humorous, conversations
designed to entertain as it teaches. And, as with all Financial Poise Webinars, each episode in the series is designed to be viewed independently of the other episodes, so that participants will enhance their knowledge of this area whether they attend one, some, or all of the episodes.

Episode #1
According to the Securities and Exchange Commission, the number of private investment funds in the United States grew from 20,000 in Q1 2013 to more than 25,000 in Q1 2015. This included 1,100 more hedge funds, 1,500 more private equity funds and 140 more venture capital funds. So what are private
funds and why are they growing so quickly? This webinar explains the basics of private funds, how and why they differ from public investment options, and how investors gain access to the different kinds of private fund vehicles. Included is a breakdown of the three major private funds (private equity, venture capital and hedge fund) and what makes each unique.
