Private equity funds provide firms with long term funding that enables them to achieve growth. Investors in such funds are subject to illiquidity constraints as the length of these investments is five to seven years on average. This illiquidity is rewarded with a return superior to listed equity. Whereas French households invest most of their savings in short term products, the efficiency of the Public Sector initiatives to direct part of these savings towards the private companies deserves to be highlighted.
