How does TPG (a private equity firm) make money?


  1. TPG is a private equity firm that invests in a portfolio of companies that span multiple sectors and asset classes. Private equity firms invest in non public companies or purchase businesses with the intention to either turn around the company's operation strategy, reformat the company for a stronger resale value, or position the company for an initial public offering.

    Due to the strong number of M&A transactions of 2014, private equity firms have steadily gained more public attention. A most recent example would be 3G Capital's announcement to merge their Heinz brand with Kraft. The acquisition will give 3G a stronger position in the food and consumer goods industry as well as hopefully put Kraft in a better operating position.

    TPG has some restructuring and retooling to do as of late. Recently they announced an interest in purchasing Avon, a multi level marketing agency. According to some reports, TPG has faced some fund raising troubles and performance bumps relating to failed investments. (Marino, 2015) It's still early in the year but only time will tell if TPG can turn around their firm and go public.

  2. Internet is so important nowadays that it becomes a part of your daily routine. You can read the newspaper, check your email, update your Facebook status, shop online for Christmas gifts, Skype with friends, search on Google and so on. You can almost do anything through the internet. But did you know you can also making money online? If you didn’t, then congratulations! This is a great opportunity for you.

  3. If that sounds like too much technical information for you, there is an easy button – Google’s advertising platform is as simple as signing up, enabling (on Blogger) or pasting a small code on your website, and allowing the advertisements to automatically roll in. The problem with this program is that you don’t get any commissions – and you don’t get to control the ad content. This is useful for some, but powerful users will want something a little more robust.

  4. I don’t think it matters all that much how they make money because it’s always about how we make money and that’s why I prefer to work with OctaFX broker which keeps me updated with all the news and updates like these and that always to terrific results which is why I love to work with them and always believe that such reliable sources is how we are going to get anywhere near success and without that it is going to be impossible.
