Assistance, Private equity PE refers to an asset class in which investors purchase the illiquid equity or. equity like securities of operating companies This equity is not publicly traded but instead held in. private hands In exchange for their capital PE firms take ownership stakes that range from a. concentrated minority through to majority ownership in a company PE investors typically hold these. securities for a period of three to seven years with the expectation of generating attractive risk adjusted. financial returns upon exiting the investment For more details on the PE industry refer to Annex 1. Like PE firms VC firms also invest in the private securities of operating companies VC firms are. known for investing in early stage companies that are typically riskier in nature than the investments. made by their PE counterparts See the life cycle of financing for a typical company in Table 1 Often. VC firms invest in companies in sectors that are related to technology or innovation although they may. also back businesses in other verticals In developed markets VCs also source ideas and build new. companies from proprietary networks of proven entrepreneurs This seeding of investment ideas into the. market is less common in developing markets but will likely become more common as these markets. become more robust,Table 1 Typical Stages of Financing a Company.

PE and VC firms are investment managers that typically raise fixed pools of capital that are then. invested in a diversified set of companies often across many industries Both PE and VC firms source. deals by working with a network of intermediaries 1 developing business linkages and competencies in. specific sectors and by scouring a given market for investment opportunities Apart from providing. financing PE funds typically take a capital plus approach in that they help the companies in their. portfolios to enhance management capacity improve market focus and presence strengthen governance. and manage growth Although PE investment styles may vary considerably many firms seek financial. returns by supporting and financing the growth of the companies in their portfolios As such these firms. are widely linked to job creation 2, PE and VC funds usually employ a partnership structure A fund management company or. general partner GP raises capital from a limited number of qualified investors that become limited. partners LPs of a fund Typically LPs consist of pension funds insurance companies foundations. endowments high net worth individuals HNWs sovereign wealth funds or development finance. institutions DFIs The fund manager receives two types of compensation from the investors First the. fund charges a management fee approximately 2 percent of the capital in the fund to cover operating. expenses Additionally the GP receives a share of the gains generated on its investments typically 20. percent of profits which is known as carried interest Carried interest seeks to align the incentives of the. GP with those of the LP investors in the fund See Figure 1 for a typical PE structure and business model. Figure 1 Standard PE Business Model, Source European Private Equity and Capital Association. Such intermediaries include accelerators incubators accounting firms advisory and consulting firms investment advisors. investment banks lawyers business associations and banks. IFC Job Study www ifc org, Within the VC and angel investor network incubators and accelerators are intermediaries that. help companies to grow by providing a combination of capital mentorship technical support. infrastructure and other critical resources Their ultimate goal is to prepare companies for growth and. eventual investment from VC firms Unlike VC firms however incubators and accelerators are not funds. per se and generally provide only small amounts of financing Often the capital invested by such. intermediaries is start up capital and is less than 25 000 50 000 Rather than providing significant cash. these intermediaries invest largely through in kind contributions such as workspace basic. infrastructure advice technical resources mentorship sector expertise and other types of capacity. In developing countries technical assistance TA has proven to be an important tool for fund. managers and investors in the PE and VC industries In such markets entrepreneurs and the businesses. that they manage are held back by deficiencies in business training and operational expertise These. challenges are not limited to start up businesses but can also be seen in established small and medium. enterprises SMEs or family owned businesses in a wide variety of industries Such capacity gaps often. translate into missed opportunities and broadly impede the ability of businesses to access financing. Moreover TA can improve critical business functions such as governance and financial planning which. are essential for attracting new sources of capital In the context of this report TA refers to a set of. services provided to the types of companies in which PE and VC funds invest also known as portfolio. companies or investee companies Such services build skills or capacity for the investee companies in. diverse areas such as finance management technology and strategic planning. Technical assistance can considerably enhance the effectiveness of fund managers investments. in SMEs TA mitigates risk and increases the probability that investments will perform successfully by. funding targeted operational improvements within these companies Although this type of capacity. building creates value for companies independent of their size it can be most impactful for smaller. businesses that inherently lack the resources to make such investments on their own Thus in this context. TA provides funding that allows funds to extend their reach to smaller and less sophisticated companies. For a detailed definition of the SME segment refer to Annex 1.
