Special importance is given to employees who have to wait for a company to go public so that they can buy or sell shares. Farvahar Partners offers investment and capital raising services to its clients, additionally.

He holds that this is an emerging market where hedge funds can be utilized by private firms to incur profits and have access to more liquidity.
