Abstract

Private equity funds are becoming more and more significant in the national economy and their role in the development of a country's economy has become increasingly important as a promising new financial draw in the global financial markets in recent years. Private equity firms were established in the US and expanded quickly behind the decade's brisk economic growth. This paper analyzes the pros and cons of private equity and leveraged buyouts, combining case studies, the legal basis and experience of various countries and government regulation, to discuss the problems of private equity investment, clarify the responsibilities of the government, improve relevant laws and regulations, and encourage the private equity market's growth.
