Private Equity Strategies

Editorial

Thursday, March 21, 2013

Welcome to the March Issue of Private Equity Strategies. In this issue we’re going to look at the potential symbolic and real effects when large institutions like pensions and endowments divest.

In our Dealmakers Q&A we will speak with Jim Butterfield of the Riverside Company to learn more how they shrink their funnel from 4000 opportunities to the 20-30 deals they make each year. Butterfield will also take us through their recent Baby Jogger transaction to learn about what set that portfolio company apart in the deal making process.

In Regs Watch, Jay Gould of the law firm Pillsbury has contributed a piece about the recent enforcement action the SEC took against Oppenheimer’s private equity group and what it may mean for private equity firms now that they are coming under closer scrutiny from the regulator. We will also highlight other recent regulatory changes to put on the radar.

In our Data Snapshot, we discuss the growing institutional appetite for the IPO market with Maria Pinelli, Global Vice Chair of Strategic Growth Markets at Ernst & Young, which recently surveyed a number of institutions to find out why IPOs may heat up this year.

In our Movers and Shakers section, law firm Nixon Peabody contributes an update on a potential new investment area for private equity firms in New York State.

As always, Quick Hits will have a round up of fund news and events.

I welcome your feedback and hope you will continue to reach out to me about our coverage and where we might go next.

Sincerely,

Bailey McCann
