March 4, 2012 Debbie Jacobs Quote of the Day

According to Reuters.com, asset managers from across the globe participated in a recent Hedge Fund and Private Equity Summit.

Permira managing director Tom Lister responded to a question regarding UK union pressure, stating:

It was not easy to do what he (Permira managing partner Damon Buffini) did. He and we became a focal point. He took a position — I’m going to be a leader, I’m going to explain to the world what we do. And we’ve told some of that, and I think it’s helped enormously.”

He added, “As long as we are generating the returns we are generating, and we continue to outperform other indexes, I think the fee structure is fairly resonable.”

“The way companies get bought in other markets has a set of barriers that don’t exist here,” he said of the private equity industry.
