In recent years, the private equity industry has experienced unprecedented success, with a record amount of money raised, invested, and returned to investors.1
However, the techniques are specific to the sector and a nuanced understanding of the processes, terminology, and legal frameworks is essential for anyone looking to operate within it.
This Oxford Private Markets Investments Programme will build on your existing financial industry experience to broaden your knowledge of this fast-growing sector.
Gain access and insight into the world of private markets, and learn the necessary skills to capitalise on new opportunities.
