The article focuses on the decision by Hicks Muse Tate & Furst Inc. to separate its U.S. and European divisions which is not likely to ripple out across the landscape of domestic U.S. private equity firms with overseas operations. For a lot of the U.S. buyout firms, Europe has been a better market than their home market in recent years. The Hick Muse split is merely an exaggerated outcome of the shifting focus from the U.S. to European private equity that has occurred as European returns have become more attractive to investors.
