INVESTMENT OPTIONS INCLUDE:
There are more private companies than public companies, and many of them take on investor capital. Private equity is a broad term encompassing the entire investment spectrum of the private capital markets, and different private equity firms specialize in multiple investment strategies. Private equity firms typically raise funds and take capital from both non-institutional and institutional investors. The funds will then be used to place investments in promising private companies. The capital is returned to investors upon an exit event such as an IPO or acquisition after the firm takes its management and performance fee. Private equity is a general classification that includes the investment in start-ups, venture capital, and financing throughout phases of a company's growth.
DIRECT INVESTMENTS IN START-UPS
AND PRIVATE COMPANIES
Investors can directly invest into start-ups and private companies as opposed to investing in a private-equity fund. Investing seed capital directly in start-ups is sometimes referred to as angel investing. This is a high risk and high return strategy for investors as many start-ups end up failing. A private company will seek investors through a private placement based on a certain valuation. Retail investors can participate in some offerings depending on the type of registration exemption the company relies upon. Companies seek investment capital throughout their life cycles', so more mature companies can also be targeted for investment.
This is a subset of private equity specializing in the investment in early-stage to growth-stage companies. Firms will specialize in early stage investing, raising funds from high net worth and institutional capital and deploying them to companies ranging in industry, geography, and funding stages. This capital source is very important for start-ups and early-stage companies that have no access to public financing as most of them lack extensive operational or revenue history. Venture capital is typically a risky asset class, but can produce outsized returns upon a successful liquidity event. Early venture capital investors in famous start-ups like Google (GOOGL), Facebook(FB), and Twitter (TWTR) often make significant returns.
Real assets are physical or tangible assets that have intrinsic value such as real estate, oil, precious metal commodities, and agriculture land. Luxury and collectable goods also fall into this category, including wine, art, jewellery, rare coins, and baseball cards. Investors can buy real assets directly or invest with a fund specializing in real assets.
These are pooled investment funds that are formed to invest in a variety of strategies and asset types. Hedge fund managers raise funds and invest with a variety of styles and financial instruments. Some of the more common hedge fund strategies include equity long-short, distressed assets, arbitrage, and macro-trends. Hedge funds differ from private equity and venture capital funds in that they invest in public equities and generally have greater redemption frequencies and liquidity, meaning investors can get their money out more often.
PRIVATE PLACEMENT DEBT
Investment in debt is also a large market in the alternatives space. Similar to equity, private placement bonds are not issued or traded publicly and are not required to be rated by a credit rating agency. Promissory notes or mezzanine debt are often used to finance a private company, while giving investors a steady stream of cash flows.
