Private Equity Strategies


Friday, February 22, 2013

Welcome to the fourth issue of Private Equity Strategies, in this issue we'll take a look at the debate over the great shakeout that may be starting in private equity this year.

In our Dealmaker Q&A following on the shakeout theme, Andrew Hawkins will discuss his new vehicle for disrupted cycle funds, which are having a dif­ficult time finding exits post-crisis.

Regs Watch offers updates on a full scope of new guidelines, including calls for regulatory changes in the UK and a new video discussing what the current carried interest tax structure means for private equity.

Movers and Shakers looks at the robust growth happening in the real estate sector now that a good portion of it has been cleaned up in the wake of 2008.

In the Data Snapshot, we will look some of the larger real estate transactions and funds currently in the market as well as a few set to come to market this year.

In an IPO update, we talk with the lead fund on the MICEX IPO, which went forward successfully last Friday, and what it means for capital markets in that country.

For a bit of artistic flair we've included a new infographic, which details the impact of angel investors in the US.

Finally, we offer brief updates on recent transactions and people moves in Quick Hits. Our events calendar will look at the events kicking of 2013. Please send any updates or feedback on this publication to me at mccann@opal­ - I'd love to hear from you.
