Editorial

Monday, December 02, 2013

Welcome to the latest issue of Private Equity Strategies. We are covering a lot of ground this month as our insiders uncover new opportunities, and discuss possibilities for next year. Our editorial piece looks at microlending, with the president and CEO of Women’s World Banking.

In our Dealmaker Q&A, Dave Moylan the COO at Yennai Capital breaks down how he evaluates potential deals, and new opportunities in the lower middle market.

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. This month we also have a Regs Note which covers expiring tax provisions in the US tax code that could impact portfolio companies.

Movers and Shakers looks at the recent Accruent transaction and opportunities for growth equity firms in the technology sector.

We also chat with EBF associates on their latest fund closure and learn about opportunities in hard assets.

Finally, we offer brief updates on recent transactions and people moves in Quick Hits. Our events calendar will look at the events kicking off 2014. Please send any updates or feedback on this publication to me at mccann@opalesque.com - I’d love to hear from you.

Best,
