What is different about working with a private equity house?

There are differences between being an FD or CFO of a PLC and a PE backed business, but they are not that different in reality, you have investors, or investor representatives, to report to. It is the number and frequency of interactions that varies. With Private Equity investor you meet the investors every four to six weeks. PE investor relations are typically more frequent and more intense, but there are also a smaller number of people to deal with.  PE houses prefer to work with people they know or at least those with experience of working within this environment.
