PE VC Hedge Funds - What is Private Fund

What is a “Private Fund?”

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.
