How you make money
Private equity investments are meant to be longer-term investments and the investor is often rewarded with a substantial return for their patience. There is no set length of time for every private equity investment. Each investment has it’s own "lock up," or term, which is the length of the investment. With private equity, the term is usually between 1-10 years. At InvestX, we provide access to late-stage private companies with exit potential within 12-36 months, either through an IPO event or a acquisition/trade sale. It is important to note that after an IPO, there is typically a 6-month underwriter lockup period, meaning that investors must wait for 6 months after an IPO before they can sell their shares.
How InvestX makes money
Carried interest ("carry") fee - PE fund managers typically receive 15-20% of the profits. It is also known as a "performance fee" because it is the fee that the manager makes for enhancing the company's performance. It’s important to note that the manager only receives the performance fee once they have returned all of the contributed capital to the investors or limited partners (LPs). Management fee - PE fund managers typically receive a small management fee, which is around 1-2%. This fee covers the cost of managing and investing in the private company.
