Editorial

Friday, May 30, 2014

Welcome to the latest issue of Private Equity Strategies. This month we’re opening with a brief update on a new survey Opalesque conducted, sponsored by Intralinks. The survey, entitled “Let’s Be Clear,” examines how LPs view the disclosures they’re getting from GPs and what is still missing from those reports.

We are also looking at new trends in how the smaller parts of the credit landscape are being impacted by the change in regulations as well as how private capital is stepping into help them out. Two stories in this issue look at different ways private funds are putting their weight behind small bank loans and even smaller peer-to-peer loans. Both of these areas are heating up, and have significant cross-over appeal between hedge funds and private equity. Check out our Movers & Shakers column for more there.

Our Insiders View features a conversation with the Textron CIO about how he sees the merger between hedge fund and private equity interests. The conversation is notable for GPs, as this investor hits on some key areas GPs may be falling behind hedge funds.

As usual we’ve also included our monthly Regs Watch and Quick Hits columns for brief updates on regulatory changes as well as new transactions, people moves and events.
