Private equity invests in businesses across the country, improving the lives of millions of Americans each day. If you just look at your own community, you’ll see private equity firms investing in companies and small businesses that need capital to keep their doors open, create new jobs, and grow their footprint.
Millions of Americans also benefit directly from the positive returns private equity routinely provides to its investors. In fact, the largest investors in private equity are public pension funds, meaning teachers, firefighters, and other public employees are the biggest beneficiaries of private equity.
Private equity helps companies grow, saves local jobs, and boosts the retirement savings of millions of Americans.
