From the Author The average birthdate of this year's crop of INSEAD MBAstudents coincides with the 1989 publication of Barbarians at the Gate, a taleof greed, subversion and conspiracy that chronicled the largest leveragedbuyout of its time in the early days of PE. In light of such an ignoblebeginning for the industry, who would have thought that the intentions of thosepioneer raiders would, over several decades, mature into a focus on valuecreation and the impact of their investments on the communities in which theyoperate and on society as a whole? Who could have envisioned today's vibrantstart-up ecosystems back in the 1940s and '50s when the likes of ARDC3 and 3iwere set up by their respective governments to stimulate post-war economies? PE is no longer a fringe asset class. It has matured and isnow considered mainstream. PE funds have figured out how to embrace change andevolve, which bodes well for the coming decades. I foresee major changes on thehorizon and, fully understanding that forward-looking statements have areputation of straying significantly from future reality, wanted to share my attemptat a glimpse into the future in the final chapter of the book.
