Story by Leon Gettler of Leading Company
This article in the Leading Company website contrasts the negative press private equity often receives to the perspective of an Australian private equity manager and AVCAL members, Wolseley Private Equity. Speaking to Angus Stuart, a director at Wolseley, the article documents the relationship between a private equity manager and the businesses they invest in. The article also looks at some of the operational aspects observed by the PE manager in growing/expanding their portfolio companies and some facets of the private equity management style that are often not openly discussed in the mainstream press.
