Editorial

Monday, December 11, 2017

Welcome to the latest issue of Private Equity Strategies. In this issue, we take a look at how Brazil is bouncing back after recent turmoil in LatAm's largest economy.

Our data heavy year-end issue also looks at the expectations gap between investors and GPs both from a transparency standpoint and from a technology standpoint. Independent analyst Roger Beutler also takes a look at the fundraising environment as we head into a new year.

Data from Coller's Private Equity Barometer shows that investors are warming to European private equity as they look for new, global opportunities. This trend is backed up by an examination of recent changes in France by lawyers for Latham and Watkins - legal trends show positive regulatory changes for private equity in France.

Finally, in our Movers & Shakers section, we highlight new transactions and funds from Silverpeak, NEXT Investors, DSC Quantitative & Northleaf.

We hope you enjoy the issue - stay tuned for new releases in 2018 and please reach out if you would like to contribute.
