Financial Residency

Dec 31, 2021

When you are close to retirement private equity may come calling. What does a physician need to do when approached by private equity? What is there to consider? Everyone's situation is different. There are advantages and disadvantages to selling to private equity and the same when keeping a practice private. One of the major draws is that private equity tends to offer a considerable amount of income. However is it worth it? In this episode, private equity is discussed from two perspectives. Dr. Bradley Block invited two physicians who had given eloquent, concise arguments for and against selling onto the show to discuss their reasoning. It made for a very informative conversation.
