Most investors understand how to evaluate and make investments in traditional asset classes i.e. equities, bonds and cash. Of late there has been significant downward pressure on the returns from these asset classes with the risks involved also soaring. This has necessitated individuals, asset managers, insurance companies, pension funds, investment groups etc. to take a keener look at alternative asset classes to diversify risks and bolster returns. This course is geared towards one of the alternative asset classes i.e. private equity, loosely defined to cover angel, venture and private equity investing. It aims to provide the participants with the necessary skills to evaluate, value, structure, negotiate, invest in and manage investments within this asset class.
