Private equity refers to the ownership of assets of a company that is not publicly traded. These assets may have debts or other liabilities attached to them. Owners of the private equity of a company accrue monetary or privately tradeable value from the assets they own when either the company is liquidated and all the debts of the company are paid off or the portion of the company’s assets they own is sold off together with all the proportional debt attached to the aforementioned asset.
