I wonder what proportion of private equity firms die a natural death during a ten year cycle? As you said, they have key man provisions and people retire, teams break up, key investors change their focus, or the GP might be a division of a bank or something that has a strategy change.

There must be a certain Percent like 5% that is always dying?
BTW, great blog, keep it going.


I would definitely add Helmsman to the survivors' list with their $185m turnaround fund. With their experience from the major insolvency firms they are ideally placed in the current environment and if I was them, I would ask my GPs for dispensation to raise another fund. I'd go for something like $400m+.


You're probably right. Both Helmsman and Anchorage are in the right place (distressed assets) at the right time.
