Observations of a PE Analyst

During my time working as an investment analyst for a private equity fund, I have witnessed a number of incidents that have made me question the phrase “outside the realm of possibility”. A sheer lack of time, money or authority is never a concern for making decisions – as long as it solves the problems of the overlords, it shall be done.

This post lists the best of the golden nuggets gleaned from my time in private equity till now – observations that no one will ever point out to an outsider or a newcomer. When you talk about “inside peek”, this is as good as it gets.
