Raising Capital - A Fresh View From Toronto

A Guest to Canadian Private Equity Blog
A warm welcome to Jeff Watson, our guest columnist. We hope Jeff will visit us on a weekly basis to give an update on what is hapening in the world of private equity. Here's what's new from Jeff Watson:

Private Equity Funds are turning their attention towards the emerging markets as the U.S. and Western Europe economies continue to withstand economic slowdowns and the global credit crunch. New York-based private equity giant Kohlberg Kravis Roberts & Co (KKR) announced this week that it will be opening an office in India by the end of this year.
KKR has a history of investing in the region, having acquired Flextronics International for $900 million in 2006, the largest ever leveraged buyout in India. Earlier this year, the private equity firm said it would invest $250 million in Bharti Infratel Ltd., India’s largest private telco firm.
