It notes that Italy has previously experienced periods of exhausting regulation over such transactions. The discussion analyzes the governing and financing behavior used by private equity investors in order to manage investment risks and related agency problems. From there it turns to a study of how venture capitalists affect the governance of their portfolio companies within the private equity market of Italy.
