As the name suggests, 'Private Equity' indicates private investment in part of a business which is not available for investments to public. For instance, there are shares of companies like Apple and Microsoft which are available for trading for anyone and everyone. However, there are the privately held businesses which may not have listed their shares on the stocks exchanges, but may have got 'private investments' from certain financial organizations. These funding financial organizations are called private equity companies, and a lot of these are listed on the stock exchanges. This gives the common investors a good way to invest indirectly through the private equity channel. This article provides the list of ETFs which belong to the Private Equity category and are available for trading in the U.S. capital markets. Following is the list of all 3 exchange-traded funds that FKnol has in its database for ETFs which belong to the Private Equity category:

Since valuations of private equity companies may be a tough game, the route of Private Equity Exchange-traded Funds (ETF) is considered to be a safe bet by many investors. Such private equity ETFs invest in the select basket of stocks of companies which are in the private equity business - that is, they finance other companies by buying a part of their businesses in private deals. Though the success of such financing by such private equity companies varies, the private equity sector is known to pick up promising and budding companies early on at low prices, and then sell them off for a multi-fold profit. Many private equity ETFs track a suitable private equity based market index in a passive manner, while other actively pick and choose their own set of financial securities to invest in. This article lists all the Private Equity ETFs available in FKnol.com records as of writing.
