Lower Middle Market Weekly Outlook

Good morning, all. Hope all of our readers in the Northeast will stay warm and safe through the imminent snowpocalypse.

Last week, deal professionals gathered in Davos for the annual World Economic Forum. The event offered a flurry of networking and a chance for dealmakers from around the world to share their perspectives on 2015. Attendees seemed generally optimistic about the coming year, despite a variety of geopolitical risks. Stephen Schwarzman is particularly focused on oil, claiming it is the “biggest investment opportunity in the world.”

On the domestic front, PE professionals can breathe a little easier as an SEC official reported that there will not likely be an immediate crackdown on private equity.

One last note: today is Middle Market Monday, the inaugural holiday to celebrate middle market businesses and their needs for 2015.
