Opalesque: Private Equity Strategies

14 October 2015

(Opalesque: Download) Welcome to the latest issue of Private Equity Strategies, following a brief hiatus, we have returned on a quarterly basis thanks to the generous support of Arthur Bell CPAs. In this issue we will discuss a new and significant fundraising initiative underway at Edmond de Rothschild Group, which will involve bringing a handful of new vintages to market over the coming year. After that we turn to succession planning – a hot issue for GPs and LPs alike.

Our Regs Watch section will highlight recent SEC action on fees among other regulatory updates. In our data snapshot, we will look at a recent report LatAm from the Latin America Venture Capital Association (LAVCA), as well as some new Preqin data on fundraising trends.

We close out the issue with interviews from Canadian VC Wellington Capital, new energy firm Pearl Energy, F-Prime Capital, and some new research on fund performance in private equity. Finally, our Quick Hits section will provide a brief update on recent people moves, deal closes, and events.
Here’s a question we would like you to think about and report back on – regulation is changing private equity, but views are mixed as to whether investors ultimately end up with better funds. So, in an ideal world, what does the perfectly managed and regulated private equity firm look like? Tell us if you’re a GP, LP or something else and what you want to see. Also specify your origin country.
