English term or phrase: private equity investment
Just need confirmation on whether "private" in this context is "persendirian" or "swasta"?

ABC is a company involved in making private equity investments in buyouts, recapitalisations and financial restructuring in Asia.

Explanation:
There're private as well as public equity. Public here denotes public-listed company whereas private'd be like plc or our sdn. bhd.Incidentally, for a clearer understanding, there's also "PIPE: Private Investment in Public Equity" = A transaction in which accredited investors are allowed to purchase stock in a public company, usually below the market price. The stock is registered with the SEC so that it may later be resold to the public.
