Private Equity Spotlight - October 2014
In this month’s Private Equity Spotlight, we examine whether or not buyouts and, in particular, public-to-private transactions are still attractive to the investment community, in light of industry debates that the leveraged buyout market has slowed. In addition, we look at US-based public pension funds’ commitment to the private equity asset class following the news of high profile US state pension scheme CalPERS withdrawing their exposure to hedge funds. Plus, the latest statistics surrounding North America-focused fundraising, MENA-based investors, North American add-on deals, venture capital deals, private equity secondaries and buyout fund performance. Also find details for upcoming private equity conferences around the world.
