The $4 billion that PEP has raised for its fourth fund - from a broad pool of institutional investors and high net worth individuals here and overseas - is unambiguously good news for the deal-making community in Australia.

Not only does it treble the size of the next biggest local buyout fund, it makes PEP unique among its Australian peers in being able to contemplate acquisitions of $350 million or more on its own accord.
