Whilst the PE houses operate in a similar way to private investors, they will only consider larger sized investments. Private equity houses are usually inundated with enquiries and tend to take a long time to conclude their transactions. There are, however, a handful of funds that will seriously consider recovery or turnaround investments and can act quickly, although again it should be stressed that these funds principally exist for larger SME transactions normally requiring £1 million upwards.
