Happy Spring! This month we are releasing two different formats - one is our standard PDF, and the other is an interactive format which includes video. Both should be readable in Adobe, but the PDF will be a smaller file size. The interactive format has embedded video and will be larger - just as a caution for mobile readers! Going forward, we will be looking for ways to bring you new, and interactive content in the form of video, audio and interactive data snapshots. We also have additional content releases planned in an effort to make your reading experience richer and actionable. As always you will be able to stay with the plain PDF if you prefer. I hope you will share your own ideas and feedback with me about what you would like to see. Some of you already have, and these new features are a direct result of those conversations. Please keep it coming, even if you don't like what you see.

On to this month – we open with the launch of a new resource for GPs, LPs, and anyone involved with corporate finance. The Center for Audit Quality is working with faculty at Harvard Business School to craft case studies and videos designed to help spot corporate financial fraud.

In the Next Generation series, we report on the creation of a new academic and industry partnership the –Private Equity Research Consortium, which brings together professors from several business schools with industry professionals to build upon the body of academic research around private equity.

We bring back Tools of The Trade for a discussion with Shareholders Representative Services co-CEO Mark Vogel about a new partnership with Capital One Bank that aims to create a new market standard for deal parties on escrow and payment agent services.

Regs Watch will take a look at some recent shifts in people and priorities of international financial regulators.

Our Data Snapshot takes a look at the deep interdependence between pension funds and private equity with new analysis from the Private Equity Growth Capital Council (PEGCC).

In Movers and Shakers we talk with CEO and co-Founding Partner of Franklin Square Capital Partners, Michael Forman about nontraded business development companies, a structure of interest to private equity firms and investors alike.

And finally, as always, Quick Hits will look at recent fund news from around the globe. Happy reading.
