Preferred Equity Definition


Preferred equity is different from common equity. This is due to investors receiving preference when distribution of the common equity occurs.

Generally speaking, all profits in a preferred equity investments will pay out to investors once all of the debt are repaid. After investors receive their preferred return, the remaining profits go back to the common equity holders.
