    [$$] Goldman, Blackstone Make Peace in Credit-Derivative Standoff

    Goldman Sachs Group Inc. and Blackstone Group LP recently resolved a monthslong standoff over a controversial derivatives trade that had alarmed regulators and investors in the $11 trillion credit-default swaps market. The Wall Street giants had taken opposite sides of a bet on bonds issued by home builder Hovnanian Enterprises Inc. The trades, engineered by Blackstone’s GSO Capital Partners LP, involved the home builder intentionally skipping a small interest payment earlier this month in exchange for an attractive financing package from the private-equity house. Blackstone had bought insurance against a default, which would allow it to make money from the skipped interest payment.

    [$$] US states move to close carried interest loophole

    has warned investors that it faces a growing risk of significantly higher tax bills because of efforts by US states to end a lucrative tax break that Washington lobbyists have fought hard to preserve. A California proposal to levy state tax on carried interest — the share of investment profits that hedge fund and private equity managers are paid as an incentive to hit higher returns — faces its second key legislative hurdle this week. Under federal law, carried interest is taxed as a capital gain, rather than as personal income, enabling hedge fund and private equity executives to pay lower tax rates on some of their earnings than salaried workers.
