Finding Out What Private Equity Firms Are Doing

Summary

The private equity world is shrouded in mystery; the arcane deals that make their partners a lot of money are not published; these firms are not public.

They must report acquisitions to the SEC.

There are ways to pry out this information.

The partnerships and limited  partnerships that make up the private equity  world are shielded from public scrutiny; one must invest (usually) $5 million and up, to participate. Are there ways to find out what they are doing (and participate in the fun and profit)? They must make public at least some of their acquisitions; can this information be used by the private investor? AI technology could be used to track these firm's activities.
