Week in Review: SOTU, BDCs, and Emerging Markets

On Wednesday, President Obama delivered his fifth State of the Union Address. While it was unlikely he was ever going to address private capital markets directly, his promise to bypass Congress has worried some senior PE professionals — primarily for tax reasons.

As the NYTimes explained, “In theory, the Treasury Department and the Internal Revenue Service could act without Congress’ involvement to change how the existing tax law applies to this form of income, which is known as carried interest.” However, theory is a long way off from practice.

In other news, distressed investors are seeking new capital in 2014, BDCs have some advantages over PE, and Marcum Cronus released it’s Q1’14 Energy Bulletin.
