PRIVATE EQUITY is equity securities of unlisted (non-publicly traded) companies. Private equities are generally illiquid and thought of as a long-term investment. Private equity investments are not subject to the same high level of government regulation as stock offerings to the general public. Private equity is also far less liquid than publicly traded stock.

INVERSE is the opposite or reverse. An inverse relationship between two variables means that when one increases the other decreases.
