What is a private market and why it is important
Private markets (or private market investments) are an umbrella term for investments that are not publicly available through a stock exchange.
Private markets include investments in companies that are not listed on a stock exchange (private equity), bonds that are not listed on a stock exchange (private debt), unlisted infrastructure investments (private infrastructure) and real estate projects (private equity real estate ).
Investments in private markets are of economic importance because they provide companies with capital and enable the construction of real estate or infrastructure. They create jobs and enable innovation and growth.
