MONEY TIPS FROM A PRIVATE EQUITY INVESTOR: A SIT-DOWN CONVERSATION WITH STEPHEN MURRAY
Investing your money can be both easy and hard to do. The easy part lies in putting the money aside and saving it. The hard part lies in choosing a private equity investment plan that will fit your needs.
There are so many variables to take into consideration. Which is why we wanted to sit down with Stephen Murray and have a talk with him. Up till the end of last year, Stephen was one of the top financial minds for his firm CCMP Capital. Who better to sit down and have a discussion about this than him?
“It’s important to note that popularity is not always the best way to go. So many assume that popularity is the key here. Even some investors and traders get this wrong. Here’s the deal. About 90% of all popular trading plans and investments end up failing. I am not saying to scare people. I am here to help educate some of you. This is one of the biggest misconceptions we have to work around for both new clients and those who have been with us for a while. Sometimes it’s those slow-going and off-the-shoot options which end up being your safeguard”.
The conversation spread to a variety of things after this. One of the finer points we talked about was the idea of “opportunity”. Some like to push for things to happen. While others like to wait for something to come knocking on their door. We asked Stephen’s opinion on this.

“Truthfully, the best options are going to come to you unexpectedly. I have had some clients who have pushed for something, only to have it blow up in their face. There are lots of options that will hit the private equity sector first, before they go to Wall Street or even the Stock Market. Sometimes it’s better to just sit back and see what happens”.
“I understand why some like to get pushy with their financials, capitalizing on something before someone else gets it. I don’t agree with most methods of doing this though. I tell clients this all the time. Sometimes it’s best to be patient and look for something that no one else sees. We see options that even Wall Street doesn’t take notice of. It pays to be patient and easy-paced with private equity”.
