Private Equity is Investing in Communities of All Shapes and Sizes

Washington, D.C. – According to a new American Investment Council Report, private equity firms provided new capital last year to a broad range of industries in every state and Congressional district across the country. From urban to rural and everything in between, private equity is investing in America.

Overall, private equity invested over $700 billion last year in diverse communities and industries across the country, helping to rescue, build, or grow 4,841 businesses. The top 20 Congressional districts are spread out across 15 different states. 55% are majority-minority districts, including communities of color in Chicago, Houston, and San Francisco.

Private equity capital is making an impact in big cities and small towns. The top 20 includes districts represented by Rep. Gwen Moore (D-Milwaukee, WI), Rep. Ann Wagner (R-Ballwin, MO), Rep. Alma Adams (D-Charlotte, NC), and Rep. Van Taylor (R-Plano, TX).
