Monday, May 20, 2013

Welcome to the May issue of Private Equity Strategies, this month we are continuing with our new dual format – one with interactive features and one without. We hope you enjoy our new content. Please do continue to send your feedback.

This month we look at the intersection of private equity and public life, in an interview with James Bridle, writer, artist and futurist. We have also included a video of his recent work at the Brighton Festival, in Brighton, England.

In our Dealmakers Q&A we discuss the growing secondary private equity market with Mathieu Drean of Triago, and Bill Murphy of Cogent Partners. Leading us into Regs Watch we have a brief private equity trend update from Ingrid Pierce, Global Managing Partner at law firm Walkers.

Movers and Shakers features an interview with Travis Hain, principal at Ridgemont Capital Partners. Ridgemont is a new private equity firm, which just announced the close of its oversubscribed inaugural fund after a successful spin out from Banc of America Capital Investors.

Sector View: Energy Focused Tailwater Capital Spins Out of HM Capital, Tailwater Capital has raised its first fund, Tailwater 1 which will focus on North American oil and gas investments. Tailwater already has plans for a second fund in 2014.

In our Data Snapshot we compare the differences between public boards and their private cohorts with data from a new study by EisnerAmper examining key concerns for boards this year. Tools of the Trade will look at claims brought after deals have closed. Some two-thirds of deals see a claim during the escrow period.

As always, Quick Hits and Events will look at recent fund news and networking opportunities. Please keep sending your tips and feedback to me directly – mccann@opalesque.com.
