This section of our website is devoted to our thinking on various topics relating to the asset management industry, private equity, markets and financial services in general.  These pieces may be provocative, controversial, light-hearted or even sometimes trivial but we are a firm with strong views – especially in relation to the asset management and private equity sectors. You may not agree with everything we write here but hopefully, it is clear that we are passionate about what we do and believe that a healthy dialogue is always the best way to stimulate change for the better.
