Keeping up with the Joneses is a hard game to play in private equity — particularly when 18 PE professionals made it onto the 2015 Forbes list of billionaires. Steve Schwarzman topped the PE-specific list (by a long shot), with a net worth of $12 billion.¬†He later admitted that hiring nice people helped him make his billions.

In other news, private equity firms may be able to help startups and VCs. In a profile in Bloomberg View, Katie Brenner explains, “The idea is to let a private equity firm buy out the VCs, wipe out all of the preferred stock and convert all shares to common.” The result is an appealing investment for PE, a good exit for VC, and happy start-up employees. However, many founders are still reticent to give up majority ownership.
