Inside The Goldman Sachs' Private Equity Machine: An Interview With Managing Director Henry Cornell

The mega buyouts that have taken place over the past year have largely been the domain of the independent private equity firms -- the KKRs, the Texas Pacific Groups, the Blackstones. But in many of those deals, such as the $22 billion acquisition of Kinder Morgan Inc. or the $32 billion deal for HCA, investment banks also have been in the middle of the action, playing major financing roles. In an interview with the Wall Street Journal's Henny Sender, Goldman Sachs managing director Henry Cornell will discuss how the I-bank is approaching the private equity industry, how it is attempting to steer clear of conflicts with private equity clients and how it intends to deploy one of the largest private equity funds ever raised.

A highlight of the event was when David Kostin, Managing Director U.S. Portfolio Strategy for Goldman Sachs, shared his perspectives on the growth potential and investment opportunities presented by the US Hispanic market. During his compelling session titled, U.S. Hispanization: The Quest for Growth, Mr. Kostin identified growth trends for geo-demographics and consumer expenditures that underlie his investment thesis. His report details investment opportunities in the housing, retail, health care and financial services industries that are well positioned to take advantage of the growing Hispanic market. His findings can be found in the report, “US Hispanization: Long/short Strategies” at Summit2007.pdf.
