Investing in businesses: Private Equity.

The Return interviewed the ex-Terra Firma, Forbes 30 Under 30 awarded Founder of Starlake Capital, a rapidly rising Asian Private Equity company, to demystify the world of Private Equity and Venture Capital.

The interview, with Melvin Chen, includes:

  • What Private Equity is really about, and how it differs from alternatives – for example in liquidity, and returns
  • How Private Equity performs (typically 25% IRR), and why
  • What’s happening in the Private Equity world, including the impact of technology, regulations, and global trends such as growth in Asian Private Equity

Melvin sheds light on what is often considered a murky asset class, which few people understand, and gives some great insights on what’s happening in the asset class.
