The name “Public Equity Group” is many things—among them, a statement of our values, a reference to our origins and approach, and – of course – a play on words.
While some private equity firms have been criticized for their pursuit of quick returns at the expense of long-term sustainability and socioeconomic good, PEG is about the opposite. PEG seeks to help promising public and socially-minded organizations strengthen and scale, in service of social impact, using many of the analytic, management, and organizational approaches honed by our predecessors and brethren—of whom PEG is, quite literally, “derivative.”
Play on words aside, PEG first and foremost is about growing and sustaining progress and equity, where equity is at the heart of our organization and work – and literally at the center of our name. Increasingly, we (and our partners) are becoming more explicit about our commitment to racial and economic equity in particular, for our part expressed with the launch of a new “Equity” practice area. We look forward to working with you.
