The Private Equity Industry really got started in the 80’s with about 6 Funds worth a billion dollars or greater. In the 90’s the industry moved into Europe; Asia in the 2000’s, and the latest trend for the industry is investments in Latin America.
Today, globally, there are over 500 Funds that have over a billion dollars in assets. This is a very important piece of the economy with an estimation of over 8 million people employed by companies controlled by Private Equity in the United States alone. PE is a young industry that is evolving into a focus on more specialized funds (regional funds, real estate funds, energy funds, infrastructure, etc.).
