Bloomberg: In Macho Buyout Industry, Women Are Raising Their Own Funds
The founders of four private equity firms talk about why they took an entrepreneurial path.
One way around that is to start a fund company. Women and people from minority groups owned a record 627 US-based private equity and venture capital firms at the end of 2021, up from 502 companies a year earlier, according to Fairview Capital Partners Inc., an investment group that allocates funds to diverse managers. Most of these firms are too young to have generated meaningful performance data, and there are few if any organizations tracking the funds globally.
