    • BX will surely get it's fair share.

      There's been some talk and writings abut how money flow into private equity is going to slow because their returns are going to be down.

      I think this may be true for smaller hedge funds who attract mere millionaires. BTW, anyone notice FiG's AUM decreased by $3.5B last quarter, while BX increased by $6B?

      But, for the big $ investors like pension funds and oil money, there's no real alternative for investment vehicles.

      There's no doubt the PE/hedge fund industry will consolidate, but that should be an advantage for is a leader in the industry.
