Tuesday, July 23, 2013

Welcome to the July issue of Private Equity Strategies. Historically, the summer months have been thin for financial news and activity, but not this year. This month we have a power packed issue including news on regulation changes and several notable launches.

In our Dealmakers Q&A section, we open with a discussion of private equity fundraising trends that are driving decisions through the remainder of the year. Veteran placement agents Chris Hastings and Gus Long take a deep dive into where they see opportunities.

Following this theme we speak with Judd Hollas, CEO of EquityNet, a platform for crowdfunding that will move into high gear now that the SEC has finally issued guidance on advertising and crowdfunding allowances included in last year’s JOBS Act.

Regs Watch will take us through some other notable regulation changes including delays on FATCA implementation.

In our Movers & Shakers section, we look at the launch of Mission Creek Capital a new distribution management company and speak with Co-Founder and CEO Henri Moudi.

We are looking closely at venture capital this issue with an interview with Hall Capital on investment opportunities in the space. New Ventures our Venture Capital watch column looks at new SEB transaction involving 3D graphics. We follow with the announcement of another technology-focused transaction this time driven by Partners Group.

Finally, as always, Quick Hits highlights new transactions and events to be aware of. Thanks again for your on-going feedback and tips, please keep them coming.
