The Myth of Private Equity
Thu, October 13 5:30 pm – 7:30 pm
The Wharton Club of Charlotte invites you to join us for what is sure to be an informative discussion on the private equity industry from an insider’s perspective. Once an obscure niche of the investment world, private equity has grown into a juggernaut, with consequences for a wide range of industries as well as the financial markets. Private equity funds control companies that represent trillions of dollars in assets, millions of employees, and the well-being of thousands of institutional investors and their beneficiaries. Even as the ruthlessness of some funds has made private equity a poster child for the harms of unfettered capitalism, many aspects of the industry remain opaque, hidden from the normal bounds of accountability.
