As an industry, private equity has developed at an incredible rate. From its beginnings in the 1940s and '50s, via a period of seminal change in the early 1980s, an industry has developed which is rarely out of the mainstream media. As the mid- and large-sized buyout market develops, the sector is seeing the emergence of more consortium deals, more cross-border activity and rigorous portfolio management. Larger Private Equity firms have increasingly developed their activities to become major global organisations and private equity markets continue to develop in Asia, South America and Eastern Europe.
