« It's been a tough year for private equity | Main | The Biggest Ponzi Scheme You've Never Heard Of »



Love the blog, and this was a great post. I've never quite comprehended why people go into a deal with a "hurdle rate mentality". Of course you want the highest IRR possible, but when making the investment, I think some deals that could turn out to be phenominal are passed over, and other deals that end up flopping shouldn't have been invested in to begin with. Keep up the great writing.


What about building a relationship with an individual private company? Are there still investors who are interested in companies with great long term potential and are willing to back such a company for years of development? What kind of returns does a company need to offer, and within what time, to attract an investor to a long term project?
