The consultant must be a person with at least a five-year business experience, have a financial interest in at least one of the companies, and have expertise in public and private sector financial planning.

The criteria for private-sec investment include a firm’s profitability, competitive position and potential for future growth.
A private-capital-fund is required to have a turnover of at least €1 million per annum for a minimum period of five years.
This is the maximum investment required by the Government for the private-finance fund to be eligible for a private fund designation.
An initial assessment will be made by the Irish Independent’s chief economist and independent TD about the adequacy of the investment to meet the company requirements.
The process of approving the investment requires a shareholder referendum on a shareholder vote.
The government has also made an agreement with the European Commission to make the fund eligible for investment by a national entity.
The Government has also agreed to provide a deposit insurance policy covering up to €15 million of private-fund investment.
A new company would not be eligible to apply for investment unless the private fund is already registered in Ireland.
The rules for an investment company are set out in the Private Finance Initiative (PFI) register.
PFI rules require an investment-to-private equity (P2P) transaction to be approved by the regulator in accordance with the Irish securities regulations.
The regulator must then conduct a formal assessment of the fund.
The investment company must hold at least five per cent interest in a specified company, and must meet all the following criteria: a company must have been a wholly-owned subsidiary of an existing company, a company with no more than €500 million of assets under management, and at least 75 per cent total assets in the previous five years have been invested in Irish companies and the private sector.

The funds management must be overseen by an independent auditor, who will have no influence over the investment and the company must pay management fees and have to submit quarterly audited accounts.
P2P transactions are considered to be for a limited period, typically between three and six years, after the date the company is granted investment status.
A person seeking a P2A investment must meet the requirements outlined in the PFI register.
A P2B investment is required if the fund is granted an application for investment status by the same entity that made the initial assessment of a company.
A separate P2C investment is not required.
A fund must have adequate funds to cover the investment period.
A non-public fund may be granted a private investment fund designation if it meets the conditions for the designation.
Private equity funds must be managed in accordance to the P2X framework of investment regulation. The
