Empirical Part II: Managing Diversified Portfolios

Part of the Contributions to Management Science book series (MANAGEMENT SC.)


While the first empirical part of this study was able to establish relationships between diversification, relatedness, experience and performance, the majority of performance differences cannot be explained by looking at private equity portfolios. Instead, one is required to investigate the different management models and characteristics of private equity firms and how those differences lead to superior or inferior performance. The alchemy of the management models of private equity players is what ultimately explains the success factors of a good private equity player and will highlight what it will take for a public corporation to learn from private equity.
