July 21, 2021 - ROI AND PE OWNERSHIP – DRI recruits executives for private equity (PD) and venture capital (VC) portfolio companies that maximizes the ROI (return on investment) for investors.

Return on investment (ROI) is a ratio between net income (over a period) and investment (costs resulting from an investment of some resources at a point in time). A high ROI means the investment's gains compare favorably to its cost.

Private equity (PE) is ownership or interest in an entity that is not publicly listed or traded. A source of investment capital, private equity (PE) comes from high-net-worth individuals (HNWI) and firms that purchase stakes in private companies or acquire control of public companies with plans to take them private and delist them from stock exchanges.

Because private equity (PE) entails direct investment—often to gain influence or control over a company's operations—a significant capital outlay is required, which is why funds with deep pockets dominate the industry.
